Additional Benefits of the RMC 3500

100% Yield of Battery Components

100% of the materials are recovered. More than 86% of the materials are upcycled.

Energy Conservation

It is more sustainable and up to 90% more efficient to recycle zinc, manganese, potassium and steel than it is to mine and produce these materials from ore.

Additionally, when these materials are produced using the RMC technology, huge amounts of greenhouse gas emissions are also saved.

Reuse of Metals

We produce upcycled premium metals as opposed to slag, bag house dust, landfill cover, road fill or other lower tier diversion applications.

Crop Generation and Food Growth

RMC's micro-nutrient additive is increasing corn yeilds by 20 additional bushels of corn per acre. This is an important application to help feed a growing population from finite farmland.

Less Transport = Less Green House Gas Emissions

The premium products we produce are in high demand throughout North America and are consumed in close proximity to RMC.

Most other comparable technologies produce a material that must be additionally refined prior to end use. This consumes more energy, generating increased emissions.

Since our process is mechanical it can be built cost effectively where sufficient battery feed stock is collected (as little as a few million kilograms is required to justify RMC's process) limiting transportation and the associated green house gas emissions.

Supports Specialty Recyclers

Mechanical systems require strict sorting of batteries by chemistry to ensure proper recycling. Sorting results in better control over environmental outcomes as separated battery types can be processed by the best specialty recyclers using technology designed for recycling specific battery chemistries. This increases recovery and limits losses to the bag house or slag of heavy metals.

Scalable Technology

The RMC process was designed to recycle alkaline batteries. Operational and recycling costs decrease as tons collected and treated increase.

Used batteries make up less than 1% of all waste found in municipal landfills. That 1% of batteries is responsible for 88% of all the toxic heavy metals found in the landfill.
