OTHER GENERAL INFORMATION

Batteries and their components that have been discarded as garbage by a consumer or a bulk consumer, as well as rejects from manufacturing, refurbishing, and repair processes, are all referred to as battery waste.

Environmental pollution from used batteries will be serious. The two most popular methods for treating waste batteries today are incineration and landfilling. These methods are followed by solidification treatment, manual sorting, wet recovery technology, dry recovery technology, and bio-metallurgical technology.

The legislation and guidelines governing the secure and correct disposal of batteries are governed by the Battery Waste Management authorization. The battery guidelines, which are based on environmental norms, would apply to all people and businesses involved in handling batteries.

Battery waste management permits are issued by the State Pollution Control Board or the Pollution Control Committee.

The government charge for a battery waste management (BWM) authorization certificate may range from zero to ten thousand rupees depending on the State Pollution Control Board.
