July 15, 2021: UK lead battery recycler Enva will increase its capacity by 50%, the firm announced on July 1.
The firm says it has invested in new material handling and processing lines and has upgraded its facility licences with the country’s environment agency to increase annual output and also allow other types of battery chemistries to be handled.
“Recycling batteries ensures valuable resources can be reused in more sustainable products and aren’t lost forever via landfill or incineration,” said battery business general manager Arvydas Pocevicius.
“This expansion of our operations represents a significant increase in the UK’s lead acid battery recycling capacity. It will result in fewer batteries needing to be exported for treatment, driving additional CO2 savings.”
