ECOBAT Battery Technologies upgrades its fleet


ECOBAT Battery Technologies (ECOBAT) has upgraded and added to its fleet of delivery vehicles. The new vehicles will be responsible for delivering batteries from all 16 of ECOBAT’s sites across the UK and Ireland.

One of ECOBAT’s key values is to promote sustainability, not just with its closed loop battery recycling, but also with day to day practices, including its delivery vehicles. The 11 new vehicles take advantage of the latest technology that converts NOx emissions into nitrogen and water and reduces more than 99% of emitted solid particulates. The Start-Stop battery fitted in each van also helps to reduce CO2 emissions and the company’s smarter delivery routes are further reducing CO2 emissions.

Formerly known as G&P Batteries, ECOBAT Logistics UK & Ireland offers a battery collection service with guaranteed compliance and the highest safety standards.

All waste batteries are hazardous and there is stringent legislation governing their handling, storage, transport and disposal. With more than 30 years’ experience in the industry, ECOBAT Logistics UK & Ireland has an established reputation for the safe, compliant removal of any type of battery or battery-powered appliance.

All batteries can be collected and recycled, ranging from major stand-by batteries to the smallest button cells. ECOBAT Logistics UK & Ireland is regarded as the national expert in handling every possible battery chemistry.

Services are divided into four areas: Bank, Collect, Sort, Recycle. The company provides a wide range of battery banks for customers to store waste batteries safely until they are collected.

It offers a timely and cost-effective collection service for battery quantities ranging from 5 kg to 28 tonnes. The company’s West Midlands facility has a dedicated battery sorting operation to identify all battery chemistries and separate for optimum recycling.

All batteries become part of ECOBAT Technologies’ closed-loop battery recycling system. Waste batteries are recycled in accordance with all current legislation with the maximum output reuse possible.
