Battery Recycling Market: Increasing Government Regulations on Lowering Greenhouse Gas Emissions to Drive Growth

Blog Description

Batteries are amongst the most extensively employed sources of power and comprise precious and rare earth metals. There is an increasing requirement for recycling batteries, which are spent, in order to recover these precious materials and for their reutilization. If batteries if not recycled, need to be disposed of through landfills. These disposed of batteries may start leaking harmful chemicals, which may further pollute the underground water resources and land.  Hence, it is extremely vital to recycle batteries in order to impede environmental hazards. The materials which are recovered post the recycling process include, plastics, acids, metals, paper, etc.
