This process has been developed beginning last decade and continuously improved to nearly zero emission today. Under high vacuum, NiCd batteries are incrementally heated up, reactions take place to convert Cadmium hydroxide into metal, which is then distilled within vacuum to highest purity (up to 99,95%). This most advanced and unique recycling process already meets recently implemented emissions- and exposure limits at first.
Recycling of Nickel-Cadmium Batteries
– lowest emission (< 0,001 Cd g/h)
– robust process safety
– lowest impact on labor safety
