Sam Haig, Battery Recycling Business Manager at RSBruce, reveals details of our new Battery Recycling service.
“For several months now, we have been busy investing in state-of-the art equipment, a dedicated area in the factory and the right personnel so we can offer a full lithium ion battery recycling service.
The Government’s drive towards decarbonising vehicles means that petrol and diesel cars and vans will be phased out by 2030. Over the past few years there has been a steady increase in the number of electric vehicles on our roads, supported by Government incentives, particularly for electric vans.
Our new service will involve stripping down the lithium ion batteries and putting them through a rigorous process which extracts metals and precious metals, making them available for selling into other processes, or for recycling. We are already servicing the market very successfully by recycling lithium ion batteries from laptops and mobile phones.
