world’s largest producer and recycler of lead, ECOBAT Technologies Ltd. is
currently the only global company offering a closed recycling loop for lead acid
That loop begins and ends with specialist ECOBAT group member companies which collect, transport and store waste lead acid batteries and battery powered appliances ready for recycling. The core material from these products is used by our smelters to manufacture the highest quality lead and lead alloys.
