Lead is one of the most effectively recycled materials in the world and today more lead is produced by recycling than is mined. Recycling lead is relatively simple and in most of the applications where lead is used, such as lead-acid batteries, it is possible to recover it for use over and over again. In fact the quality of recycled lead is often similar to that of metal obtained from mining.
With an estimated more than 50% annual worldwide consumption being satisfied by recycled material.
Lead- Acid batteries account for more than 80% of present day worldwide lead usage and have an extremely high rate of recycling. Lead is a valuable material so rather than send used lead-acid batteries (ULAB) to landfill at the end of their life many countries around the world send ULAB to recycling plants that operate under environmental friendly regulations; thus ULAB is best raw material for producing Secondary Lead.
