Benefits of Shredding Batteries for Recycling
Shredding batteries comes with several benefits that help move the recycling process along smoothly, and because of the unique recycling challenges posed by the varying battery types, Shred-Tech® has ensured that our shredder machines have the full capability of safely and efficiently shredding them down to scraps that can be then further processed. One benefit to shredding batteries is easier retrieval of precious materials. Many batteries are manufactured with valuable metals and more that are often thrown away without reuse. Our shredders break the battery materials down to a tiny size, which allows said materials to be more easily processed, retrieved, and recycled to generate further revenue and produce more goods. Another benefit is the protection of the environment. Too often batteries are simply thrown into landfills, or worse, dumped into the ocean or other bodies of water where the heavy metals within can cause substantial damage to the ecosystem, be it ground or water. By shredding batteries, those heavy metals and other materials are reduced, allowing for a proper and clean disposal and/or recycling process to take place.
Shred-Tech Shredders for the Battery Recycling Process
In order to ensure the highest level of protection for the environment, and to help our customers retrieve and recycle as many valuable materials as possible, Shred-Tech® offers our own line of industrial battery shredder machines. Our powerful Aqueous Shredder utilizes a submerged setting to prevent the possibility of fire from LIBs and EV batteries, thus helping to liberate, classify, and concentrate all LIB and EV battery materials without altering their chemistry. Meanwhile, select models from our ST and STQ Shredder series help to shred alkaline, lead acid, and nickel cadmium batteries with ease thanks to their high-power motors, strong cutting force, and efficient speed.
