Challenges in dealing with lithium-ion batteries in municipalities

The safe handling of lithium batteries poses various challenges for municipal facilities such as schools, recycling centers or community centers, starting with the implementation of appropriate safety precautions and the training of personnel to the disposal of lithium-ion batteries in accordance with legal regulations.

Safety precautions and education

Despite the widespread use of lithium batteries, there is often a lack of knowledge about the potential dangers and proper handling of the batteries. Unknowingly damaged or defective batteries can pose a high safety risk, as they can catch fire or even explode unexpectedly.
It is therefore essential that appropriate measures are taken in municipal facilities such as kindergartens, retirement homes or community centers to ensure the safe handling of batteries.

Frequent fires at recycling centers

An increasing problem in municipalities are fires at recycling centers caused by improperly disposed or damaged lithium batteries. Our battery safety containers, with their fireproof construction and special insulation, provide a safe place to store damaged or discarded lithium batteries.

Complexity of disposal

Lithium batteries contain hazardous chemicals and must be disposed of properly to prevent environmental damage. Proper disposal requires specific knowledge of battery types, segregation of materials, and regulatory compliance. For many municipalities, this presents a challenge, as they may not have sufficient resources and expertise.

“RETRON BOXES have ensured the safe handling of tablets, power banks and even e-scooters in our school. The lithium batteries are now all safely stored in the boxes and damaged batteries are collected by RETRON experts and disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner."

Recycling center with safe disposal option for lithium batteries: application example

Municipalities are obliged to provide municipal collection points for battery-operated electrical appliances and lithium-ion batteries. In order to comply with all legal requirements for protection against battery fires, a comprehensive storage and disposal concept for lithium-ion batteries is required.

The solution: Our large containers for lithium-ion batteries are set up at the central recycling center, in which rechargeable batteries can be safely disposed of by citizens. This ensures safe storage, even in the case of unknowingly damaged or defective batteries. In addition, the modular design of the RETRON container system enables a flexible adaptation to the respective requirements and capacities at recycling centers in mobile hazardous waste collection. Extremely simple and extremely safe with RETRON.
