General information about batteries

Lead batteries

 Lead batteries consist of a container made of polypropylene or bakelite, lead compounds and sulphuric acid. They are used for the electric propulsion of cars, forklifts and other means of transportation. Batteries are also used in emergency power supplies such as switchboards and other installations. We have the necessary permits

Recycling batteries and determining scrap battery prices

When scrap batteries of private individuals, garages and car demolition companies are processed – in total 20,000 tons per year in The Netherlands – hardly any residue remains.

Because of the positive residual value of lead, the return for recycling is very high (98%) which is why batteries are a constant factor in the product range of scrap metal companies. Nonetheless, in the early nineties, batteries were seen as hazardous waste. Thus, a permission is necessary to trade in batteries. There is no possibility to recycle batteries in The Netherlands, they are processed in plants abroad. The scrap battery price and our battery purchase price per kilo (or per ton) is based on the price for scrap lead, which is again based on the LME lead course.
