Lead Waste Recycling

Batteries may be hazardous wastes because they contain heavy metals and corrosive electrolyte solutions that are the source of their energy. There are eight metals commonly used in batteries including Lead, Mercury, Nickel, Cadmium, Lithium, Silver, Zinc, and Manganese.

Lead-acid batteries are most frequently used in automobiles, boats, and other vehicles. Each battery contains lead and corrosive sulfuric acid electrolyte solution. Smaller sealed lead-acid batteries have been used in computers and cellular telephones.

Waste Battery Management

The Industrial waste management plan will address the following aspects:

  • Treatment, Storage & reuse of Industrial Waste Water
  • Storage & disposal of solid waste
  • Monitoring of the quantity & quality of the waste treated, stored & disposed of
  • Operations and maintenance programme for waste management systems

Waste Lead Technology

The Industrial waste management programme will incorporate the maintenance of log- books for the purpose of inventories of the quantities and types of waste generated, stored and sent to external disposal sites. Records will be kept of the waste quantities generated on a daily basis and their waste characteristics shall be determined at reasonable intervals especially when changes are anticipated.

Waste Water: Our plant does not make any water discharge as process is dry in nature. We have to make up water in Wet Scrubber. Only wash-water from worker shower drained out after settling Tanks and meet the standards of effluent discharge in the water i.e., pH value of the discharge water is between 7.0 to 8.5, total suspended solids in the water is less than 500 mg/Lt. and the Lead concentration in the effluent water is maximum 5 mg/Lt.

Solid Waste: The Smelting process finally generates Slag, which confirms Lead contents below 2.0% by weight, and is non-leach able in nature and can be used for land filling with contriving 550mg/Kg Soil Concentration limit.

Disposal Technology for Lead Battery Waste

Air Emission control & Management

The Air Emission management plan will address the following aspects:

  • Management programme for in-plant sources of air emission
  • Operations and maintenance programme for air emission control systems
  • Air Emissions Monitoring Programme

Air Pollution: The Lead Smelting Process (Pyrometallurgical) generates Lead Dust, Lead Ash, SO2, CO etc. which is being controlled by our Pollution Control Equipments. Our plant confirms Ambient Air norm for Lead as 1.0 ug/m3 (24 hours).

Noise Emission Control & Management

The Noise control & management plan will address the following aspects:

  • Monitoring & control of machinery Noise
  • Monitoring & control of Noise Emitted by transport vehicles

Noise Pollution: Since very few rotating equipments generate noise, the possibility of noise pollution occurring at the work place has been taken into account. Our plant confirms the maximum noise level limit as 65 dB at day time and maximum of 55 dB in night time at plant perimeter.
