Why should we recycle lithium batteries?
- Lithium batteries are the primary type of rechargeable battery – once emptied, they can be recharged for repeated uses.
- Lithium batteries can ignite or explode if not recycled properly
- Recycling is the ideal method for lithium batteries, as landfilling and incineration take a significant toll on the environment
- Through recycling, critical raw materials are extracted, which, in addition to the environment, also help in the more efficient and cost-effective production of new resources
- Lithium batteries are commonly used in devices such as Bluetooth headsets, cell phones, digital cameras, laptops, smartwatches, flashlights, some toys, remote control devices, tools, and drones
