Who is Raw Materials Company?
Raw Materials Company was established in 1985 on a belief and vision that all consumer batteries need to be recycled responsibly and not discarded into municipal landfills, regardless of type.
Our focus has always been to find recycling solutions that are not only economical, but also solutions that are considered socially and environmentally sustainable. The RMC 3500 processing technology that we developed for alkaline batteries has been independently verified under CSA Group Guideline - CSA SPE-890-15 to have a recycling efficiency rate of 84%. Our technology is forever evolving as we push ourselves to stay on pace with advances in battery manufacturing.
RMC was also one of the first environmental companies to receive the ISO 14001 accreditation. RMC has been ISO 14001 registered since 2000.
