PROFESSIONAL AND INDUSTRIAL SECTOR

Maintenance activities, production processes, repair of equipment, technical services, security and surveillance companies, workshops, dismantling of facilities are likely to generate waste batteries.

This activity converts the generator of the waste into a producer of the waste and is therefore obliged by law to take charge of the collection and correct management of this waste.

Collection operations are conditioned by the composition, size, weight or condition of the batteries used in these activities, or a combination of all these characteristics.

Ecopilas has specific channels for professional, industrial collection, adapted to the needs of producers and the most frequent technologies used in this type of products, also ensuring complete traceability of the collection and management of these batteries.

Through Ecopilas you will be able to manage used batteries in an appropriate way, complying with current legislation, contributing to the improvement of the environment and at zero cost for your company.

INDUSTRIAL BATTERIES (NI-CD, LEAD) ARE COMMONLY USED, BECAUSE OF THEIR RELIABILITY, IN LARGE INDUSTRIAL INSTALLATIONS, IN THE ELECTRICAL AND RAILWAY SECTORS AND IN OIL AND GAS COMPANIES. THEY MUST BE COLLECTED SEPARATELY AND FOLLOWING STRICT SAFETY PROTOCOLS, WHICH GUARANTEE THEIR CORRECT FINAL MANAGEMENT IN A TREATMENT PLANT, DUE TO THEIR POTENTIAL ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD. THANKS TO THE AGREEMENTS REACHED BETWEEN ECOPILAS AND THE MAIN RECYCLERS OF LEAD-ACID BATTERIES IN SPAIN, WE ENSURE PROPER TREATMENT OF THIS TYPE OF WASTE.
