BATTERY RECYCLING - AUSTRALIA
The hazards of battery recycling
Inside Waste recently reported the cause of the fire that destroyed Canberra’s recycling plant. “The presence of multiple batteries of varying types, identified in the remains of the waste compacter, caused a thermal runaway which ignited the fire.”
The article goes on to recommending that all members of the community use the Australia’s nationwide battery stewardship scheme, B-cycle, to dispose of their unwanted batteries. The scheme is run by the Battery Stewardship Council (BSC).
Superfy, working closely with Ecobatt, is proud to support the B-cycle scheme, using a combination of our sensors and the Superfy platform for efficient asset management and routing.
