Event Overview and Preliminary Plan:

Lead Acid Batteries ("LAB") are considered the most cost-effective, safe, and environmentally-friendly form of power storage which is commonly known and used as car/vehicle batteries as well as Uninterrupted Power Supply ("UPS").  LAB comprises three main components: lead, acid, and plastic which, are separable and recyclable. At the end of its life cycle, waste LAB (WLAB) becomes a toxic and corrosive chemical waste and requires proper treatment. Any improper disposal of WLAB can cause long-term devastating consequences for rural soil and water systems, particularly in densely populated cities such as Hong Kong.

Hong Kong Battery Recycling Centre Limited ("HKBR") is the ONLY battery recycling plant in Hong Kong that provides a complete LOCAL process from collection to recycling of WLAB. Deploying state-of-the-art technology to ensure a safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly solution, as well as fully compliant with the Basel Convention and Waste Disposal Ordinance (Cap. 354) ("WDO") of Hong Kong.

As our economy decarbonizes, choosing a local treatment will eliminate the unnecessary carbon footprint as far as possible during the export of WLAB.  Besides, turning toxic waste into reusable materials, which is essential to HK's sustainable development.
