Dubatt is the first fully integrated Used Lead Acid Battery (ULAB) Recycling Facility in UAE. With a factory spread across an area of 150,000 sqft and capacity to recycle up-to 50,000 metric tons per year, Dubatt is the only ULAB recycler in UAE and one of the largest facilities in the region.
Dubatt was incorporated with Inspiration from the Dubai Integrated Waste Management Strategy 2021-2041 envisioned by H.H Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, and chairman of the Dubai Executive Council.
We recycle the Used Lead Acid Batteries in our state-of-the-art factory at Dubai Industrial city and manufacture value added lead metal products that are sold as raw material for new battery manufacturing. This way we energize and contribute to the UAE Circular Economy Policy, UAE Sustainability Goals, and the “Make in Emirates” initiatives.
Lead Acid batteries are hazardous in nature after their end of life as they can create land, water and air pollution if not recycled properly.
As such lead acid batteries are one of the most recyclable materials as it is possible to reclaim around 90% of its weight as reclaimed lead, plastic and other bi-products which are used extensively for manufacturing of new batteries and applications in fishing, medical and other industrial sectors.
Dubatt is the First Fully Integrated Used Lead Acid Battery Recycling Facility in UAE. We have a capacity to recycle 25,000 metric tons of batteries and produce around 14,000 tons of Lead, 1750 Tons and Other Bi-products.
The Recycling process of Used Lead Acid Batteries can be categorized to 3 stages :
Batteries are Crushed in a hammer mill and undergo a process called hydro separation in a series of machineries to separate the various components as:
Preparation of charge (lead grids and lead paste) along with other reagents/chemicals and charging to the rotary furnace and recovering of the metal as jumbo lead bullions.
Further refining of the lead bullions to yield refined lead ingots and lead alloys as per customer requirement which then goes for manufacturing of new batteries.
