Batteries contain substances, which can have relevant direct or indirect impact on the environment. We work to minimize this potential effect complying with or exceeding regulations. Our quality management system has put a comprehensive risk analysis in place. It is regularly and unannounced inspected by authorities. Results are published on the website of the authority (District Government Düsseldorf): www.brd.nrw.de
Mülheim recycling facility processes batteries containing nickel and cadmium, both are heavy metals potentially dangerous for the environment. Accurec has committed to a repetitive voluntary control and measurement of emissions, which confirms its ultimate low off gas emission status:
Cadmium: < 0,001 g/h
Nickel: not measurable.
Also Accurec’s Li-battery recycling process at the plant at Krefeld plant does not emit toxic gases or metals due to the high end particle filtering system (HEPA).
Total dust: < 0,1mg/m3
Arsenic: < 0,001 mg/m3
Cadmium: < 0,001 mg/m3
Lead: < 0,001 mg/m3
Nickel: < 0,001 mg/m3
(score less than 0,001 mg/m3 indicates that element has been below detection level)
