Are the environmental consequences of pollution seriously amplified? Should the used batteries be recycled centrally?
As a mobile energy device, batteries (Manufacturer of electronic components) play an important role in daily life. Almost all portable devices are equipped with integrated batteries and common reusable batteries such as mobile phones, smart watches, laptops, etc. Gas stoves, dry batteries built into toy remote controls, etc. And the stock of power batteries like cars and even electric vehicles are growing rapidly. But the public does not have a unanimous opinion on how to dispose of faulty batteries, and the battery industry's view on "battery recycling" is also very different.
Is the battery seriously polluted?
Ordinary batteries can cause environmental pollution, mainly because batteries contain heavy metals such as cadmium and chromium and also contain traces of mercury. In fact, the normal process of producing dry batteries does not need to add cadmium, lead, arsenic and other substances, the highest level of environmental pollution are nickel-cadmium batteries. With the development of technology, nickel-metal hydride batteries and lithium batteries are gradually replacing nickel-cadmium batteries.
Most environmental protection videos of public welfare describe the disadvantages of randomly discarded batteries: 1 part of used batteries will pollute 1 square meter of soil and dozens of groundwater, and used batteries should be recycled. But contrary to similar propaganda manuals, battery industry experts believe that dry batteries are discarded directly into non-recyclable trash cans without causing concentrated environmental damage.
Do you want to concentrate on disposing of used batteries?
There are three types of batteries commonly used in the world: solidified and buried, stored in rubbish mines and recycled. The collection of discharged batteries focuses on discarded primary rechargeable batteries, such as nickel-cadmium batteries, nickel-hydrogen batteries, lithium-ion batteries, lead-acid batteries, and primary batteries of wasted type such as silver oxide. For normal dry cell batteries, the state does not encourage or limit recycling. .
At this stage, the treatment of dry batteries has been relatively complete and dry batteries and household waste are transported to the landfill for incineration of waste for treatment, which is convenient and economical. However, due to historical reasons, many people do not know that dry batteries should be treated centrally. However, if the processing conditions are not perfect, the dry waste battery will be treated in a concentrated manner, but it will cause some pollution. In fact, it is not as friendly as disperse in the trash bag.
