Electric lawn mowers, vacuum cleaners, e-bikes or wireless tools are omnipresent and quite handy. The one thing they all have in common is lithium-ion batteries. But these are not only full of energy but also full of dangers. Especially faulty batteries can easily catch fire or – at worst – explode.
The professional disposal of lithium-ion batteries is a complex process that comes with a catalogue full of provisions and conditions that have to be observed. Due to this legal and administrative framework, trade, municipalities and industry are facing major challenges. Especially for small and medium-sized companies it is difficult to properly package and securely dispose faulty LI-batteries. In addition they are facing high financial burdens due to the professional and lawful handling. A situation that calls for an urgent solution.
“Safety” and “easy handling” have the highest priority in all services and products REMONDIS offers. Based on these values we developed the new transport and storage system that makes the disposal of lithium-ion batteries not only easy but especially safe. Waiving all inert bulk materials is the clever and dust-free way to the solution. This solution is called RETRON.
The service of transport and processing is not only safe and easy to integrate into any business – it is a unique system world wide. As a two-in-one solution RETRON is both a storage and transport container, offers extreme thermal insulation, is dust-free and easy to use, adaptable and safe.
