Used lead acid batteries contains contents having harmful composition and if exposed to the environment it can negatively affect it, that is the major reason it is considered as a hazardous waste that requires serious attention while handling, transporting and recycling. Direct exposure to the lead components can be responsible for serious health issues and simultaneously can cause damage to the environment. Hazardous waste of used lead acid batteries should be recycled in a properly controlled environment consequently improving environmental quality and health. Recycling of used lead acid batteries also encourages protection of non-renewable natural resources and reduction of energy consumption.
Following is the step by step process of recycling of used lead acid batteries in a highly standardized controlled environment that ensure a sustainable system of lead utilization for environmentally sound management of used lead acid batteries:
