Recycling and Proper Disposing of UPS Batteries – Doing Our Part
Lead-acid and lithium batteries have many uses in all parts of the world. Lead-acid or lithium batteries are the backbone to any uninterruptible power supply system, and a lot goes into their proper recycling and disposal.
The combination of sulfuric acid and large amounts of lead in UPS batteries can be highly toxic. Exposure to excessive levels of lead can cause damage to the brain and kidney functions, along with a lengthy list of other health risks. In developing countries, over three million people die each year due to lead contamination from the processing of lead-acid batteries.
Nationwide Power is committed to doing its part when it comes to proper disposal and recycling of UPS batteries. We have partnered with regional recyclers that deliver loads of used batteries to North American smelters each month. Proper removal and recycling of UPS batteries is included in every UPS battery quote.
Additionally, Nationwide Power stays current with the latest developments in UPS battery recycling and environmental safety. As one example, we have been closely following AquaMetals, a US based company that could be on the brink of revolutionizing the recycling process for lead-acid and lithium batteries.
