Industry warned on reputational risk from rogue battery recyclers

The lead battery industry has been praised for ramping up efforts to tackle rogue recyclers— whose illegitimate activities have been linked to rising death rates in nearly 60 countries.

The president of non-profit organisation Pure Earth, Richard Fuller, told the International Lead Association’s (ILA) Pb2019 conference in Madrid “informal recyclers” were a threat to human health and posed reputational risks for the legitimate lead industry.

Batteries in ‘golden period’, but vigilance needed for lead

Battery technology is in a “golden period”, but lead-acid in particular still faces potential regulatory obstacles in Europe, manufacturers have been warned.

Dr Steve Binks (pictured), regulatory affairs director of the International Lead Association, told the Pb2019 conference in Madrid there had “never been a period where battery technology was so recognised as being critical” to e-mobility, energy storage and combating climate change.

LIBs inch ahead in battery market, but Pb has power to grow

Lithium-ion batteries have grabbed a larger slice of the worldwide battery market than lead for the first time, but Pb will continue to grow at a “modest rate”, according to a top industry analyst.

Battery expert Dr Geoffrey May (pictured) told the International Lead Association’s PB2019 conference in Madrid that lithium-ion had a worldwide market share of US$40 billion in 2018, compared to $37.5bn for lead. This was the first time lithium-ion batteries had been ahead, he said.

The memorandum of understanding has been signed to improve workers' health

The International Lead Association (ILA) and the Chinese Nonferrous Metals Industry Association (CNIA) have signed a memorandum of understanding to improve the health of lead workers in China as well as the communities and environment impacted by lead work.

The agreement will involve closer links between the ILA and China’s lead industry, as represented by CNIA. It builds upon the ILA and CNIA’s previous initiatives to develop benchmarking assessments for environmentally conscious disposal and recycling of used lead-acid batteries.
