Research and Development

ECOBAT customers benefit from tailor-made solutions for their businesses combined with comprehensive customer and superior technical Support 

In our research and development department, we have several internationally recognised specialists, each of whom is recognised for their expertise in lead, lead alloys and battery technology.

Our core product, lead, is used across a wide range of industries including the lead-acid battery, building, chemicals and nuclear fields. Each of these industries has its own particular requirements, often demanding an in-depth understanding of the functionality of the product within a given application. Not only are we able to support these various applications,  the ECOBAT R & D organisation develops and optimises high quality “superior products” such as bismuth-enhanced and SuperSoft® soft lead, calcium/silver and complex other alloys.

Importantly, we ensure that our production exactly matches the quality specifications required by our customers, whether this is for soft lead, lead alloys or any of our other products. Our customers benefit and guarantee from ECOBAT, a tailor-made solution for your business combined with comprehensive customer and superior technical support.

As part of our commitment to technology and investment, ECOBAT operates the only QSL reactor for primary lead production which is located in Stolberg, Germany, and we apply WESP technology in our production facilities in the United States.
