To support the resource efficiency strategy for industrial and critical materials – and specifically for batteries – the EU parliament has adopted REGULATION (EU) No 493 in 2012. This regulation specifies how material efficiency in battery recycling processes is calculated and sets the minimum requirements on treatment facilities and processes.
Accurec has investigated its recycling procedures scientifically and designed clearly arranged process data sheets to show rates of recycled materials and their final destination for main chemistries. These Material Efficiency Data Sheets can be downloaded for
- Nickel Cadmium batteries
- Nickel-Metal Hydrid batteries
- Lithium Primary batteries
- Li-Ion batteries
Processes and results have been audited by an external and independent expert. Full reports can be submitted on request.
