Lead Acid Batteries


Batteries that were used, having lead electrodes and sulfuric acid electrolyte, often in cars and backup power systems. People like them because they have lead that can be recycled, and you can use them again when making new batteries.


A lead-acid battery is a rechargeable battery commonly used in various applications, including vehicles, backup power systems, and industrial settings. Comprising lead plates submerged in a sulfuric acid electrolyte solution, lead-acid batteries store electrical energy through chemical reactions that convert lead sulfate back into lead and sulfuric acid during the charging process. Due to their high energy density, lead-acid batteries are well-suited for applications requiring sustained power. However, when these batteries reach the end of their life or incur damage, they become lead-acid battery scrap. Recycling lead-acid battery scrap is crucial for recovering valuable lead and other materials. This environmentally responsible practice not only conserves resources but also helps minimize pollution associated with improper disposal, contributing to sustainable waste management and resource conservation efforts.
