Better resource utilisation and reduction in primary energy consumption in lead metallurgy

Rising quantities of used batteries worldwide represent a major environmental burden if the waste is not treated in some way. High lead content and other alloy components require recycling of old battery cells. The project participants are developing a treatment method that provides useful recycling of the raw material and energy contained in the plastic elements as part of the lead recovery.
