World how to give a second life to batteries

how to give a second life to batteries

-

In France, 1.5 billion batteries were sold in 2017, according to the French Environment and Energy Management Agency (Ademe). With the toxic metals they contain, these batteries can be very polluting. But what if we want to reduce their environmental impact. The most obvious solution is to drop them off at a collection point for recycling. Factories are specialized in their treatment. Their role: to clean them up and recover their metals. But another technique exists to give a second life to batteries: regeneration. The think tank Atelier 21 has updated this technique. It prolongs the life of alkaline batteries thanks to a process invented in the 90s.

Closer to the field, in France and around the world, meet those who are taking up today's environmental challenges. Plan B, the new video meeting of World, every Sunday at 9:30 p.m. on Facebook.
