The battery crushing unit

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:
