Recuperación Ecológica de Baterías, S.L. (Recobat) is a project that began in 1998, thanks to the collaboration between the most important metal recycling company in Spain, Lajo y Rodriguez, S.A. (LYRSA) and a group of professionals with a wide experience in the world of lead products recycling.
In 1998 a plant was put into operation in Pina de Ebro (Zaragoza-Spain) for end-of-life batteries grinding and, after consolidating his activity, in 2006 a complete new grinding and metallurgy plant came into operation in Albalate del Arzobispo (Teruel-Spain).
The main activity of Recobat S.L. is the recycling of end-of-life batteries and all kind of lead compounds to obtain recycled raw materials that can be fed back into the battery manufacturing process, mainly for the Automobile Industry.
Recobat has a wide truck fleet and container services for withdrawals at client’s premises that allows to render services to small producers and also to intermediate agents.
In both plants, Recobat uses cutting edge technology that totally guarantees the use of the Best Available Techniques.
The team of professionals at Recobat combines the experience in the sector with the youth of the highly qualified and specialised personnel.
Thanks to this team, Recobat develops most of their own technologies and only turns to different companies when the complexity or specialisation requires the participation of professionals from more specific sectors.
