- Transfer switches & bypass switches
- Transformers, inductors, conditioners
- Capacitors, resistors & other electronics
EPA Reclamation & Recycling for Lead-Acid
Classified as Hazardous Material by the US Environmental Protection Agency, lead-acid batteries require proper disposal. Fortunately, the typical flooded battery is 99% recyclable. Although VRLA & NiCad cells are not as reusable, they can be substantially reclaimed with the remainder safely disposed. SBS will decommission, palletize & transport your spent battery plant to our approved reclamation facility per CFR Title 49. All disposals will be in accordance with federal, state & local regulations. SBS then provides a 'Certificate of Recycling' indemnifying your company from any and all liabilities associated with the hazardous material.

THE RECYCLING PROCESS
Lead & Other Metals
Refined via thermal metallurgy to a purified state. Cast into ingot form for reuse in batteries & other products. Steel recycled for production.
Electrolyte & Sulfuric Acid
Chemically reduces to anhydrous sodium sulfate & supplied for use in the production of detergents, papers, glass & anodizing.
Lead Paste & Oxides
De-sulfered with soda ash (recycled from the steel industry), filtered & reclaimed as metallic lead through furnance refraction for reuse in new batteries.
Polypropylene, ABS & Other Plastics
Cleaned, isolated & sorted for reuse in production.
Grid Separators, Fiber Edonites & Misc.
Cleaned & combined as reverbatory fuel filler.
Slag & Reminants
Oxidized via combustion into low toxicity granules sent to licensed hazardous material disposal fills.
Flooded Cells - 99%, VRLA - 97%, NiCad - 86% Recyclable
