We are happy to announce that Battery Solutions, the leading battery recycler in the US, has agreed to purchase the OBS 600 system for automatic sorting of waste batteries. With the system Battery Solutions will be able to sort over 2000 lbs (1 tonne) per hour which will make the sorting much more efficient and will also enable collection of sorting data including brand, model, size and type.

We are really thrilled over this. Battery Solutions is a very professional and solid company with a long history in battery recycling. We will now work closely together in order to make both collection and sorting more efficient when several states increasingly are facing increased collection requirements not least for primary batteries.

Battery Solutions has one of the world’s most sophisticated alkaline recovery processes that yields a recycling efficency rate over 80 per cent. With the automatic sorting the this will create a very strong offer for companies and consumers that responsibly want to recycle their dead batteries.
