How German Deal With Used Battery

In order to strengthen the management of used battery, the German implementation of the management of waste battery recycling new requirements. Provision requires that consumers will use the end of the dry battery, button battery and other types of battery to the store or recycling waste recycling, waste recycling shops and unconditional acceptance of used battery, and transferred to manufacturers for recycling Lenovo 3000 N500 battery.

It is estimated that worldwide there are 32 billion each year is discarded used battery, only Germany is necessary to consume an average of 10 battery per year, totaling about 30,000 tons, a large number of discarded used battery on the soil damage to the environment are serious. German environmental sector for the new regulations could put an end to throw used battery of the phenomenon, is still not sure, because before, waste recycling and recovery of manufacturers is generally contain cadmium, mercury toxic chemical constituents of cells, and 90% of the ordinary zinc-carbon Lenovo Ideapad Y430 battery and aluminum-magnesium battery are used as a solid waste landfill or incineration.

According to the German Environment Ministry statistics, Germany’s annual recovery of the toxicity of nickel-cadmium battery with only 1 / 3, and 2 / 3 of the battery used as a municipal solid waste each year of mercury into the environment, about 8 tons, 400 tons of nickel, cadmium 400 t. In general, make the distinction between ordinary consumers in their lives of toxic battery or non-toxic battery and deal with them is difficult, so the new provision requires shops and assume responsibility for waste recycling. Ministry of Environment, a new way of thinking Lenovo IdeaPad Y730 battery is toxic nickel-cadmium battery and mercury battery to implement a deposit system, that consumers buy every cell contains a deposit of 15 marks, when consumers take old battery to change, the price can be deducted from the deposit.

Magdeburg peri-urban areas are being built a “wet processing” devices, where the addition to lead-acid battery, the various types of cells were dissolved in sulfuric acid, and then using ion resin extracted from the solution of various metal objects, using materials obtained in this way pure than the heat treatment method, so a higher price in the market, and the battery contains 95% of the various Lenovo ThinkPad R400 battery (14-inch wide) substances can be extracted. Wet processing can be avoided sorting areas (because the sorting is a manual operation, will increase the cost). Magdeburg annual processing capacity of this device up to 7500 tons, which means that while the cost is slightly higher than the landfill, but the precious raw materials will not be discarded, it will not pollute the environment.

German Duarte’s vacuum heat treatment developed in France but also cheaper, but that first need to sort out the waste battery, nickel-cadmium battery, used battery by heating in a vacuum, in which the rapid evaporation of mercury can be recovered, and then the remaining Lenovo ThinkPad T400 battery (14-inch wide) ingredients ground, using magnets to extract metals iron, and then extract the powder from the remaining nickel and manganese. This process one ton of waste battery costs less than 1500 marks.

How Switzerland and America Deal With Used Battery

There are two specialized processing and utilization of the old battery factory Batelieke companies to adopt the method is to grind the old battery, and then sent to the furnace heating, then can be extracted out of volatile mercury, zinc, when the temperature is also higher evaporation, which is also precious metals. After the fusion of iron and manganese into manganese alloy steel required Lenovo 3000 Y500 battery . The plant can process 2,000 tons a year of waste battery, available 780 tons of manganese ferroalloys, 400 tons of zinc alloy and 3 tons of mercury. The other plant is extracted directly from the battery-iron, and manganese oxide, zinc oxide, copper oxide and a mixture of nickel oxide and other metal to sell as scrap metal directly.

However, the heat treatment method more expensive, Switzerland, also provides buyers to each of the battery charge a small fee for exclusive processing of waste Lenovo IdeaPad Y330 battery.

Environmental management of waste battery in the legislation up to the smallest one country, not only established a sound battery recycling system, but also established a number of waste Lenovo K42 battery treatment plant, while tirelessly to provide public education for the public to consciously support and with the recycling of waste battery.

How Japan Deal With Used Battery

Hokkaido mountains Nomura Kosan Co., Ltd. is a major business deal with waste laptop battery and waste fluorescent lamps treatment, there are 110 employees. Built this way is due to here is found in Japan’s first water-silver. Nomura Kosan acquisition of waste each year from the national electricity 13,000 tons, accounting for 20% of discarded battery to collect 93% of the way through the non-governmental environmental protection organizations to collect, and 7% through the factory to collect. The business carried out in 1985 and, at present, the amount of purification has been on the rise. In the past, mainly to reclaim the Lenovo 3000 G530 battery mercury, through the high-temperature (600 ~ 700 ℃) so that the mercury emissions from burning incinerator to exclude the collection, but the battery is no longer mercury in Japan, and on the main battery recycling steel and one of the “black” raw materials , and a second product development and manufacturing, such as one of the products can be used in the TV picture tube. Processing costs, to up to 80 yen / kg, produced a profit depends largely on used battery charged before it is processed (mainly manufacturing) and the secondary use of the product Lenovo IdeaPad Y510 battery value, the latter of which is the key. The recovery of battery required to take up a lot of space, Nomura Kosan is a private enterprise, the Japanese government has not put a penny to it, but the Japanese Battery Industry Association, provided great help, and the coordination of major Japanese manufacturers make some financial compensation. Annual processing capacity of up to 16,000 tons. Another waste fluorescent lamps in the extraction of up to 40 tons of mercury a year, while the demand for a year in Japan is only 20 tons, can be achieved in this regard completely recyclable, but also to ensure that Lenovo IdeaPad Y710 battery profits.

Other cells, such as lead-acid battery, Japan could achieve 100% recycling, rechargeable battery and cell phone battery are also being adopted by manufacturers with the active, in particular, is a recovery of cobalt lithium-ion battery profitable. Through investigation, the combination of the actual situation of our country, I think first of all, we must resolutely implement the nine ministries and commissions on the restriction of the provisions of mercury in battery as soon as possible for China’s mercury-free battery, a battery of harmful ingredients will be the environmental impact of mercury in by industry, law enforcement, manufacturers strive to minimize, followed by various propaganda means to enhance the environmental awareness of citizens to carry out battery recycling and burial, set up waste battery recycling system. There is the state encourages recycling technology research in order to achieve as soon as possible after the recycling and reuse Lenovo ThinkPad SL300 battery. As for the profit-making can take a variety of ways, such as sharing to consumers, developing a market for products and so on.
