AkkuSer Ltd

We are the first in EU to develop a technology that enables recycling of hazardous batteries and accumulators in an environmentally sustainable manner. Our technology raises the degree of material recovery from batteries and accumulators to a level that restores the original meaning of the term recycle. Our solution is BAT. Our recycling plant is located in Nivala, Finland, and it is ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 certified. Our plant is an answer to the battery and accumulator directive that became effective in Finland on 26 September 2008. The directive will obligate manufacturers to recycle all their batteries and accumulators, regardless of their shape, size, composition, or intended use.

AkkuSer Ltd - a win-win-win solution
We have developed a technology that makes it possible to recycle hazardous batteries and accumulators in a truly environmental manner. Our technology raises the degree of material recovery from batteries and accumulators to a level that lives up to the concept of sustainable development. Furthermore, it makes handling of their reactive materials safe. We call our technology a win-win-win solution, since even the environment benefits.

Our recycling plant is located in Nivala, Finland, and it is ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 certified. The plant is an answer to the battery and accumulator directive that became effective in Finland on 26 September 2008. The directive obligates manufacturers to recycle all their dry-cell batteries and dry accumulators, regardless of their shape, size, composition, or intended use.

The EU parliament and council approved the directive in may 2006, after which member countries are given two years’ time to prepare for compliance with the directive.

Wireless waste
Batteries and accumulators are used as power supplies in all types of wireless products, such as digital cameras, video cameras, mobile phones, computers, and battery-powered drills. The power supplies of wireless products can be recharged and reused, but before long they also reach the end of their life cycle and become hazardous waste.

The Ministry of the Environment has estimated that 200,000 tons of batteries and accumulators enter the EU’s markets each year. Some of these batteries and accumulators contain significant quantities of mercury, cadmium, and lead. They also contain materials like zinc, copper, manganese, lithium and nickel.

True recycling
Our new production plant corrects this problem. We have sufficient capacity to process and recycle all the batteries and accumulators collected in Finland. We process and restore them for reuse without loading the environment. Our technology raises the degree of recovery of materials from batteries and accumulators to a level that restores the original meaning of the term recycle.
