Batteries and Accumulators
Batteries and Accumulators are any source of electrical energy generated by the direct conversion of chemical energy. They consist of one or more primary cells (non-rechargeable) or one or more secondary cells (rechargeable).
Most batteries contain toxic heavy metals, including nickel, cadmium and mercury. All these metals can be recovered and reused.
The recycling of batteries has beneficial environmental effects because it prevents their disposal in landfills, where the heavy metals are dispersed into the ground causing water and soil pollution and endangering the lives of plants and animals. If the batteries are incinerated together with household waste, heavy metals cause air pollution.
