The battery crushing
The batteries are collected in watertight containers. They are stored in a closed and roofed building on a watertight floor with specific slopes for recovering the liquids, thus avoiding contact with the natural environment.
Directed to the crusher, they first go through a triage station, where they are controlled. The potential non-compliant matters are eliminated and sent to adequate processing centers.
The batteries are then taken to the crusher which is equipped with hydrodynamic separators for separating the different materials found in the batteries:
Composed of metallic lead
Crushed fines or paste
Composed of lead sulfate lead oxide
From the battery external jackets VALORIZED
Battery separators VALORIZED
The electrolyte composed of 80% of demineralized water and 20% of sulfuric acid, is also VALORIZED
L’unité a une capacité annuelle de traitement d'environ 45 000 T de batteries usagées
