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