Dimensionally different recycling solutions.
Industrial Lead Batteries
KBI specializes in the processing of industrial Lead Acid batteries, which are used in many applications including power backup, power regulation for cell phone towers and data centers, and motive power for electronic lift trucks.
Lead Acid batteries are much heavier than their nickel or lithium counterparts. Currently, they weigh at least 1,000-3,000+ lbs. However, their relatively inexpensive cost makes them ideal for stationary applications where battery weight is not critical. In addition, Lead Acid batteries not only power electronic lift trucks but provide a needed counterweight when moving heavy inventory items.
Lead Acid batteries are composed of two highly hazardous components - lead and sulfuric acid. For that reason, they are heavily regulated by the competent authorities including the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Transportation (DOT). KBI has been issued a permit by the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC), which authorizes KBI to treat the hazardous components of lead-acid batteries; up to 12 million lbs. per month.
