VLAD is committed to being environmentally efficient and to:
VLAD corporate culture, oriented towards client satisfaction and technical progress, is based on its responsibility to the environment. So with the certificate balance, we support the initiative of EDF which undertakes to inject the network of 100 MWh of electricity from its own 'green' production plants from renewable sources.
Our environmental ethics has enabled us to obtain ISO 14001 certification.
VLAD is engaged in a process of sustainable development supported by its system of collection and recycling of batteries and batteries. The latter is put at your disposal free of charge on request.
It is in the context of respect for the environment which we propose you the new repackaging, option cheaper and greener than the purchase of battery packs.
All our packaging is recycled.
These environmental actions are possible thanks to our partner Corepile that manages and implements the recycling of batteries and batteries. Through us, they can provide some boxes collection
After the sorting phase, there is treatment: the material contained in cells and batteries will be extracted. There are various techniques of recycling based on the types of batteries or batteries to deal. Fetch on average 60% of the raw material of the batteries and 50% from the batteries.
Recycling involves four types of processes, according to the categories of batteries to recycle:
Aalkaline & salt, batteries lithium, NiCd, Li-ion and NiMH rechargeable batteries
Alkaline & salt, battery NiCd and Li-ion rechargeable batteries
Button cell batteries
Different materials can be reused after refining:
Improving the performance of recyclers lets hope it will be possible to recycle some electrolytes and plastics.
Thus recovered metals can be used in the manufacture of new goods of our daily lives as: copper pipes, automotive parts (steel, aluminum), cans (iron, aluminum), gutters (zinc), housewares (stainless steel), bicycles (iron, aluminum, copper, nickel,...), key (iron, nickel), cells and batteries new etc.
1 000 kilos of alkaline and saline batteries treated by pyrometallurgy is obtained:
Used in the manufacture of stainless steels (covered with table, bollards, disc brakes from TGV...)
In metallic form (roofing, gutters...), or in the form of chloride of zinc (used in the manufacture of saline batteries)
Valued as mineral matter (manufacture of rock wool, backfill material)
It thus includes the importance of each step of the collection, recovery, through sorting and treatment: Recycle the batteries and accumulators is involved in the preservation of the environment and saves natural resources!
