Recylex is one of the top market players able to achieve these battery recycling rates. Our process is one of the most efficient from both a production and environmental standpoint according to the standard formula used in Europe (EU Regulation no. 493/2012 on the calculation of recycling efficiencies for waste batteries and accumulators).
Recylex collects used lead-acid batteries throughout France and Europe. Recylex recycling plants are ISO 14001: 2015 certified and feature a patented crushing technology.
Essential component of automotive engine batteries (cars, trucks, motorcycles, industrial vehicles), lead is also used in other key applications such as renewable energy storage, telecom relay antenna batteries, radiation protection, etc.
Lead-acid technology is still the most efficient electrochemical couple in terms of energy storage and conservation. This efficiency is proven even at very high or very low temperatures ... while being cheap for consumers and end-users.
Lead wastes are dangerous for the environment, so must be recycled responsibly. Recyclable to infinity, lead is the most recycled metal in the world with one of the best mastered recycling processes. More than 60% of global production comes from recycling and this rate is growing every year.
