Choose Refurbishing over Recycling

The global use of lead-acid batteries is ever growing and therefore the importance of cost reduction for the purchase, maintenance and waste disposal of batteries has become a high priority.

The battery industry has several issues:

  • Life expectancy of a battery is 2-4 years
  • Battery performance fades during the its operational lifetime
  • Battery prices are relatively high
  • Recycling batteries causes emission equivalent to 31 kg of CO2
  • Existing service providers replace the failed cells and provide limited warranty

The key reasons for battery degradation are:

  • Sulphation and crystallization over the lead plates
  • Cell dries out and poor acid quality – leads to sedimentation which can cause electrical short circuits
  • Corrosion
  • Improper use and service

Recycle Vs Refurbish





  • CO2 emission – 31kg of CO2 per battery
  • 95% less CO2 emission when compared to recycling
  • High cost of replacement
  • Extending battery life by 2-3 years
  • Scrap battery has to be broken apart into different components
  • Significant cost savings
  • Leads to exposure to lead, acid and other hazardous chemicals
  • Minimize environmental pollution
  • Battery can still be scrapped after refurbishment

To deal with this, we have better option than Recycling i.e. REFURBISHMENT
