Innovative Solutions to Emerging Challenges in Lead Recycling

1) Lithium Guard

The rapid growth in the adoption of lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries for automotive, e-bikes, and personal mobility devices is due to their high energy density and longer lifespan compared to lead-acid batteries. The rise of electric vehicles (EVs) is fuelled by the efficiency and affordability of Li-ion batteries. However, recycling Li-ion and lead-acid batteries together is challenging due to their distinct chemical properties. GME’s solution is the AI Visual Tracking inspection technology, which detects Li-ion batteries and prepares for the next step of a complete AI-controlled recycling line. Addressing this issue is crucial for environmental safety and sustainability.

2) Power Wash

Lead-acid batteries with Absorbent Glass Mat (AGM) technology offer enhanced performance and longevity compared to traditional lead-acid batteries, making them ideal for commercial vehicles, boats, and emergency power systems. The global AGM battery market has seen steady growth, valued at USD 11.3 billion in 2019 and projected to reach USD 13.9 billion by 2025 with a 3.1% compound annual growth rate (CAGR). Europe’s AGM battery market is particularly robust, driven by applications in emergency backup, telecom power systems, solar, wind energy, and electric commercial vehicles. The increasing focus on sustainability and stringent emission regulations further fuels demand for AGM batteries. GME’s Power Wash technology facilitates efficient separation and recycling of AGM batteries, contributing to sustainability and cleaner energy sources.
