Dead Battery

The Battery Dis-Assembly Line

A dry cell battery recycling system with the smallest carbon footprint and lowest processing costs available in the industry today.

Efficient Battery Recycling and Mineral Extraction

Developed by Marlie Inc. the DCBR-50K Thermal Mechanical Hybrid System for battery recycling recovers 93% of all battery components and sorts them for reuse. It is a recycling system for primary dry cell batteries using a combination of low heat and mechanical shredding. The result is a battery recycling system providing the smallest carbon footprint and some of the lowest processing costs available in the industry today.

Discarded Batteries Negatively Affect the Environment

The need to recycle alkaline batteries is increasing everyday throughout the world, due to the fact that annually, consumers in North America alone use approximately 200,000 tons of sealed cell batteries. The majority of these end up in the unprotected municipal landfills. Over 100,000 tons of the heavy metal contained in these batteries will eventually leach into our soil and ground water, polluting the land and fresh water supplies.

Minerals are Reused and Resold

Using this recycling system, zinc, manganese and potassium are recovered from alkaline batteries and resold to industries such as agriculture. Plastic and paper recovered from alkaline, lithium-ion and nickel metal hydride batteries are reused as feedstock in an energy conversion process into high BTU content. The steel, also recovered from alkaline batteries, is reused in the manufacture of new goods, such as cars and trucks.

Finally an Environment Solution

The DCBR-50K is the battery recycling solution that could change the way the world recycles batteries. This patented technology is capable of extracting zinc, manganese, steel, nickel and cobalt from spent alkaline, lithium-ion and nickel metal hydride batteries. Using a combination of low heat and mechanical shredding, it’s possibly the most environmentally friendly battery recycling system, in the world. Easy to operate, the system is run from a central control panel and can process up to 5,000 pounds of batteries per hour. Processing all of the primary batteries sold in North America using our recycling technology for one year, would:

  • Conserve 184,000 megawatt-hours of energy – enough to power over 18,000 homes

  • Save 41,100 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions – about 2/3 of what a zinc smelter produces annually

  • Eliminate 16,300 tonnes of solid waste – over 2,300 full municipal garbage truck loads
