The safe handling of batteries is important to prevent fires, for example, wherever batteries are handled.
Trend: Traceability is a major part of the EU legislative proposal, including a proposed battery passport where information about the battery is collected. It will cover everything from material content to instructions for transport and proper recycling.
Solution: With 178 recycling facilities, we can collect batteries and other waste from 100,000 customers in all kinds of industries. Dedicated battery centers are established in all our markets.
With the right collection equipment, batteries can be handled and transported safely. In Sweden, Stena Recycling cooperates with some twenty large recycling centers for the early separation of battery-operated products from households. This enables more efficient and safer recycling in the next step. Another example is Safebox , a robust steel box we have developed to transport car batteries safely. The handling of the battery is documented for good traceability.
