ST. LOUIS (April 26, 2022) – The Association of Battery Recyclers (ABR) launched its new website highlighting the positive contributions of the lead battery recycling industry and the impressive lead battery recycling rate of 99%.

The updated site shares statistics on the number of batteries recycled annually, the recycling process and the circularity of the lead battery industry. New lead batteries, for example, consist of about 80% recycled materials, making them the most sustainable battery chemistry available. To learn more about ABR’s work supporting the circular economy of lead batteries and their network of lead battery recyclers, read their recent blog post.

Doe Run is proud to provide several steps in the circular economy of lead batteries.
