What happens to ULAB
(used lead acid batteries)

There are 3 Used Lead Acid Battery processing and recycling plants in NSW which is where almost all ULAB collected in NSW are processed.

Battrecycle works in conjunction with two main EPA licenced storage operators that then transport all of their ULAB to one of these processing facilities.

 

Approximately 96 percent of the various components of used lead acid batteries / scrap batteries are recoverable.

 

The lead plates are restored back to new battery standards, the hard plastic casing can be melted and extruded to produce plastic pellets and the acid is neutralised and converted into sodium sulphate which is used in the manufacture of laundry detergents and fertilizers.

There are many benefits to the recycling of ULAB. This includes:

 

  • Reduce the amount of mined raw material

  • A cleaner environment for future generations

  • Prevent harm to humans and wildlife

  • Protect the environment

  • Conserve natural resources

  • Reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill
