As each battery chemistry tends to require a different recycling process, all waste batteries must be accurately sorted to avoid cross-contamination down-stream at the recycling plant.
G & P's Darlaston headquarters carries EA approval as both an Authorised Battery Treatment Operator (ABTO), and Authorised Battery Exporter (ABE) as required under the 2009 Battery Regulations.
The site also is a licensed treatment and waste transfer station as required under the EA permitting regulations.
At this site all collected batteries are correctly identified, sorted and consolidated until an economical load has been accumulated. Then they are sent to the appropriate recycling site.
For more detailed information about the battery sorting process and its importance in the overall recycling process, please refer to the Battery Types section, or Contact Us if you have a specific query.
