USD13m battery recycling project launched by Arab Lead
(MENAFN) The first USD13 million state-of-the-art lead acid battery recycling project of Oman's Arab Lead Company has been launched last week at the Rusayl Industrial Estate in Muscat, according to a report by Oman Daily Observer.
The project foretells well for the safe handling and disposal of a waste commodity, which in large quantities tends to end up in municipal landfills to the detriment of ground aquifers and the local environment, the report said.
However, more than serving as a mere disposal facility, the plant is also equipped to extract and reprocess the lead content, a commercially valuable ingredient, of used car and truck batteries and return it into the global supply chain in an environmentally sustainable manner, it added.
