Dubatt Battery Recycling Expanding into Li-Ion Battery Recycling: Exploring New Frontiers

May 20, 2023


Dubatt Battery Recycling, a leading name in ULAB (Used Lead-Acid Battery) recycling, is gearing up for an exciting expansion in 2024. Recognizing the increasing demand and environmental importance of recycling Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) batteries, the company has taken a proactive step by sending three of its employees to attend the prestigious China INTL Li-ion Battery Recycling Summit in Shanghai. This event provided a valuable opportunity for Dubatt to gain insights into the Li-Ion battery recycling market, establish connections with industry-leading recyclers, and visit their state-of-the-art facilities.

Understanding the Li-Ion Battery Recycling Market:

The Li-Ion battery market has witnessed tremendous growth in recent years, driven by the rise in portable electronics, electric vehicles, and renewable energy storage systems. However, as the lifespan of Li-Ion batteries comes to an end, their proper disposal and recycling become crucial to prevent environmental harm and promote resource conservation. Dubatt Battery Recycling aims to contribute to this growing need by venturing into Li-Ion battery recycling.

Dubatt Battery Recycling's delegation attended the renowned China INTL Li-ion Battery Recycling Summit, held in Shanghai, where they had the opportunity to learn about the latest advancements, industry best practices, and emerging technologies in Li-Ion battery recycling. The summit also facilitated meaningful interactions with leading recyclers in China, allowing Dubatt's representatives to exchange ideas, establish partnerships, and explore potential collaborations. Moreover, they had the privilege of visiting the facilities of some of the leading recyclers in China.

Gaining Insights and Expertise:

During their visit, Dubatt's employees engaged in informative sessions and panel discussions, covering topics such as battery collection methodologies, state-of-the-art recycling processes, and regulatory compliance. They had the privilege of learning from industry pioneers who shared their knowledge and experiences in the field of Li-Ion battery recycling. These valuable insights will prove instrumental in shaping Dubatt Battery Recycling's approach as it prepares to enter the Li-Ion battery recycling market.

Factory Visits: Witnessing Cutting-Edge Recycling Facilities:

In addition to attending the summit, Dubatt's representatives had the unique opportunity to visit the plants of leading Li-Ion battery recyclers. These factory visits provided firsthand exposure to cutting-edge recycling technologies and processes. Witnessing the advanced machinery, quality control measures, and innovative approaches in action, Dubatt's employees gained a deeper understanding of the intricacies involved in recycling Li-Ion batteries. These experiences will be invaluable as Dubatt establishes its own state-of-the-art Li-Ion battery recycling facility.

Forging Partnerships for the Future:

Alongside gaining knowledge and witnessing recycling practices, Dubatt's representatives met with prominent Li-Ion battery recyclers, fostering relationships and exploring collaboration opportunities. By establishing connections with industry leaders, Dubatt Battery Recycling aims to leverage their expertise and technologies to ensure a seamless transition into Li-Ion battery recycling. This strategic approach will enable Dubatt to provide comprehensive recycling solutions and maintain its commitment to sustainable practices.

Looking Ahead:

Dubatt Battery Recycling's participation in the China INTL Li-ion Battery Recycling Summit and the factory visits to leading recyclers' plants mark important milestones in the company's journey towards expanding its recycling capabilities. Armed with newfound insights, expertise, and partnerships, Dubatt is well-positioned to make a positive impact in the Li-Ion battery recycling sector.

 How we recycle

The Recycling process of Used Lead Acid Batteries can be categorized to 3 stages :

1.Battery Breaking & Separation

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

  • Lead paste & terminals
  • Polypropylene chips (PPE Plastics)
  • Gypsum from the Acid Neutralization process
2. Smelting

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.

3. Refining

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.
