Industrial Battery Recycling
Characteristics of Industrial Batteries
Industrial batteries power applications like railroads, forklifts, stationary power, and backup power. They are built with lead plates, electrolytes and steel casing.
These batteries are typically large units, and can be set up in multiple rows. Toxic materials are often found in these batteries, so the process of recycling is different from standard batteries.
If you need to recycle spent industrial batteries, then you need to be sure you’re working with a proven battery recycling company so that you don’t risk harming others and the environment around you.
The Importance of Recycling Your Industrial Batteries
Industrial batteries have a variety of safety issues, depending on what form of battery you’re using. Some of these safety concerns include containing large amounts of acid electrolyte, toxic heavy metals, and cadmium.
If any of these batteries happen to spill, severe corrosive damage will occur to any objects nearby, and will cause harm to any humans that it comes into contact with. Cadmium is also a known carcinogen, which can cause cancer in living tissue. Due to these risks, recycling these spent batteries requires specialized battery recycling processes.
