Disposal of industrial batteries

Safe and legally compliant disposal and recycling of industrial batteries

take-e-way offers companies in possession of spent industrial batteries uncomplicated and legally compliant collection as well as recycling of industrial batteries. No matter whether you are a manufacturer, importer, distributor, artisan or service company or initial treatment facility as contemplated by the Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act: take-e-way is your contact of choice.

In addition, take-e-way takes care of the prescribed verification procedures, documentation obligations as well as the necessary recycling or disposal certificates, as applicable.

Packaging, logistics and recycling depend on which electrochemical battery system you order for collection and disposal.

Common electrochemical systems for industrial batteries

  • Lead (Pb)
  • Nickel cadmium (NiCd)
  • Nickel metal hydride (NiMH)
  • Various lithium ion systems (such as LiFePO4, Li-NCA, Li-NMC)

In addition to the relevant waste legislation, industrial batteries are also subject to hazardous goods legislation. The correct handling of lithium batteries for recycling is extremely important in this respect. Improper handling can lead to short circuits, heat development and even fire or to the escape of substances hazardous to health and the environment.
