Ecobatt specializes in the safe collection, processing and recycling of battery products to protect our environment, now, and for future generations. It is the pre-eminent battery recycling company in Australia. With a meticulous approach to safety and professionalism the company has invested in a state-of-the-art facility at Campbellfield, which is modelled on proven world-class battery recycling technology. With a wealth of recycling experience across the group the business has a service-based culture, where commitment, passion, and desire are central to their ‘can do’ attitude.
With over 400 million batteries being used throughout the country every year, less than 5% are recycled. This means that most are being dumped into landfill where batteries can leak and release a range of toxic substances, including lead, mercury and cadmium, into the environment. This has to change.
People recognise that they can no longer turn a blind eye to the issues of greenhouse emissions, waste management and recycling. Within the community there is a growing awareness, and anxiety, about the need to protect our environment for future generations. Global warming and sustainability are key talking points, and companies need to understand the groundswell of opinion that is building for decisive action.
The Ecobatt processing facility is supported by a state-of-the-art recycling facility at Campbellfield Victoria. A national structure of depots supports the plant ensuring timely and efficient collection of batteries on behalf of our customers.
Ecobatt are part of the Recycal group of companies that specializes in downstream processing and state of the art recycling to protect our environment, now, and for future generations.
Battery recycling poses a number of risks and to safely and effectively handle them, requires an understanding and respect of those risks.
Some companies are suggesting they have a complete processing solution, but the facts suggest this is more fiction than truth. In recent years there have been situations where huge fires have engulfed hundreds of tonnes of batteries burning for days. The EPA and local Fire brigades have confirmed that in these fires recovered batteries were stored for extended periods of time with no actual processing being undertaken. These exposures and the resulting national media coverage have been detrimental to the public’s perception of the industry.
