First of all, we must resolutely recycle the fake batteries produced by the small workshop. In addition, for example, lead-acid batteries, which contain heavy metal lead, may increase the blood lead concentration of the human body and affect the human intelligence; in addition to lead-acid batteries, nickel-cadmium batteries, rechargeable batteries, button batteries used in life (It is not within the scope of the mercury-free ban for general dry batteries, and a small amount of mercury is still allowed) etc. must be recycled in accordance with the instructions of environmental protection units.
Perhaps you have heard or experienced the theft of battery batteries, because a lead battery can sell for more than 100 yuan; the "Clean Production Standard Waste Lead Acid Battery Lead Recycling Industry" implemented from January 1, 2010 pointed out that the relevant Qualified companies must have a lead battery recovery rate of more than 95%, and some advanced equipment companies can even achieve 98%. This is a positive example of battery recycling. However, because the lead-acid battery contains about 74% of the lead plates and 20% of sulfuric acid, the existence of huge benefits has prompted some small workshops to secretly recycle and dismantle, directly remove the lead plates, dump the waste acid, and the recovery rate is not high. Said that it will also lead to pollution of water and soil, lead ions dissolved in acid will enter the environment. This also sounded the alarm for the recycling of used batteries. Recycling is a good thing, and supervision is a big thing. It cannot cause pollution while recycling pollutants.
The times are progressing, and our environmental awareness should also be improving. At the same time, our information awareness should also be improving. In the face of dry batteries that are already low-mercury or mercury-free, we should not treat them with the standards that were originally promoted. What we have to do is to reduce the use of nickel-cadmium batteries and other batteries containing heavy metal pollution, and continue to develop technical means to gradually phase out batteries containing heavy metals or find alternatives; at the same time, we must call on the government to improve the law as soon as possible and establish a waste battery recycling system The recycling of used batteries can not only reduce environmental pollution, but also save a lot of one-time deposits. The recycling of resources and the ecologically suitable talents of the environment are the results we most want to see.
