Germany takes on Ghanaian lead-acid recycling

Thu, 03/27/2014 - 12:01 -- Ruth Williams

Ghana and Germany have begun an agreement for Germany to recycle lead-acid batteries from the West African nation as part of an initiative for sustainable interdependence between Europe and Africa.

The first shipment of 20 tons of used batteries has successfully been processed in Germany, by Johnson Controls at its Krautscheid plant. A local recycling firm collected and packaged the used SLI batteries from passenger vehicles and trucks for export. Transportation was arranged by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research to be recycled in an environmentally sound way under the “Global Circular Economy of Strategic Metals: Best of Two Worlds (Bo2W) approach”.
