Most Recycled Consumer Product Maintains 99% recycle rate

Lead Battery - #1 Recycled Product in the U.S.

We are thrilled to learn about the recent research study commissioned by BCI and prepared by Vault Consulting revealing that the United States recycles an astounding 99% of all lead-acid batteries. This sustained achievement is indeed significant for the planet as it showcases the nation’s commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable practices. Recycling lead-acid batteries at such a high rate helps in reducing hazardous waste, conserving valuable resources, and minimizing the environmental impact. By responsibly managing the lifecycle of batteries, we contribute significantly to a cleaner and healthier planet for current and future generations.

We hope to see further application of the Lead Battery as it holds much promise for a greener future over the alternatives.
