Scrapping Lead-Acid Batteries

Learn how to recycle lead acid batteries. Large-format lead-acid batteries are commonly used for backup power supply for mobile phone towers and in high-availability applications like hospitals. They can also be utilized as stand-alone power sources.

Lead-acid batteries account for more than 80% of current global lead use and have an extraordinarily high recycling rate. In Europe and the United States, recycling rates exceed 95%.
