A Journey to zero effluent discharge

Matthew Morton
RMT
Plant Metallurgist

Enirgi Power Storage (EPS) is Australia’s largest recycler of used lead–acid batteries. The company has two battery-recycling facilities, namely, a 70 000 tonne plant at Wagga Wagga that is Australia’s largest plant, and a 30 000 tonne plant in Sydney. The former plant operates as a closed-loop, zero discharge effluent site. The Engitec desulfurisation process is employed together with an... more info


A sustainable economic model for environmentally sound management of used lead–acid batteries in emerging economies and those in transition

Brian Wilson
Independent Consultant

The environmentally sound management of used lead–acid batteries (ULABs) is the benchmark in Europe, North America and Australia. With recycling rates in the upper nineties, the lead industry is reaching a level of sustainability that out performs all other recycleable commodities. Unfortunately, however, the environmentally sound management of ULABs is not universal and in many instances lice... more info


Affordable environment management systems for lead battery manufacturing and lead recycling

A.K. Woo
Master Jaya Group
Founder and Chairman

Lead, a popular non-ferrous heavy metal with high primary and secondary use, presents complex challenges to the environment and surrounding populations. The ease of recycling lead has, however, resulted in various documented cases of environmental and health concerns due to the metal’s toxicity. Although it is used by many industries in different products, battery manufacturers and lead proces... more info


Analysis of lead and its alloys by optical emission spectrometry

Soo Nam Chew
Thermo Fisher Scientific
Sales Manager SEA & Taiwan

Fast, accurate, reliable and repeatable elemental analysis of lead and its alloys is crucial in the production of high-quality grid alloys for lead–acid batteries. Whilst there are several spectrometric methods available, the most widely used tool is an Optical Emission Spectrometer (OES) that uses an arc/spark-excitation technique. Sample preparation and full elemental analysis can be complet... more info

BOOSTAL™ oxy-combustion: enhancing performance of lead recycling furnaces

Genaro Guinto
Air Liquide
Combustion Application Engineer

Shashwat Bandyopadhyay
Air Liquide
ALTEC Manager - SEAPAC

The emissions from combustion are a key concern in lead recycling. Oxy-combustion is an established technology for recycling of lead scrap from batteries and other sources. Not only does it help reduce carbon footprint but also enhances both productivity and fuel savings. The flexibility of adapting this technology with different market conditions will be a vital issue for the future. The pres... more info


Clean, safe and sustainable lead–acid battery recycling

Joshua George
CITRECYCLE Limited
Chief Executive Officer

According to Pure Earth and other leading environmental organisations, lead pollution is the largest industrial pollution problem in the world and that improper recycling of used lead–acid batteries (ULABs) in the informal sector is generally the main cause. Despite regulations, in emerging economies on average 50% of ULAB recycling is undertaken in backyard, kettle smelting operations within a ... more info


Dynamics of the lead market in India under a changing scenario

Vijay Pareek
Gravita India Ltd
SBU Head for Lead Business

India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world with an annual growth above 7%. The GDP is on an upward trend due to government spending on infrastructure development and urbanization. The automobile sector is growing at the same rate and has naturally promoted an increase in the production of lead–acid batteries. The Telecoms industry and the introduction of solar and wind energy ... more info


Efficiency of ProPectin for preventing the incorporation of lead in the bodies of workers

Rasvir Mustan
VitaPro International
CMO

The need for an effective means for clearance from the body of stable and radioactive metals has become particularly relevant in relation to contamination with heavy metals and radionuclide on an unprecedented scale. Adverse radiological conditions are characterized by the possibility of additive adverse effects in addition to the combined effect of several factors, for example, incorporation of ... more info


FENIX-pb: A different way —lead reborn

Athan Fox
Aurelius Technologies
Technology Director

Vasant Kumar
Cambridge University
Head of Materials Science

Miles Freeman
Aurelius Group of Companies
Chief Executive

The recycling of used lead–acid batteries is turning the corner to a greener, cleaner and more sustainable process. With the advent of new electrolysis-based processes coming from the USA and still under development within the EU, a new recycling era dawns. There is indeed the need for improvements in quality of secondary lead and for continued advancement in lead–acid battery technology to m... more info
