Association said that, India consumes an estimated around 1 million tons
of used lead-acid batteries for recycling economy each year and
about 25-30% of this goes to the informal operators. He added that,
lead-acid batteries have the largest share, is an energy source, affordable,
dependable and are used to store and supply electricity to electric vehicles,
street lights, automotive, railway, inverters, telecom towers, and solar energy
when grid power fails.
India is one of the
highest consumers of Lead-acid batteries. Recycling of used Lead batteries is
essential to ensure the need for sustainable development. According
to India Energy Storage Alliance (IESA), the Indian energy storage
market is expected to grow to 70 GW by 2022. Consequently, there is a vast
scope for advanced storage technologies in the new applications.
technical information on various applications of lead & zinc as well as
