September 5, 2023

Environmental 360 Solutions Ltd. (E360S) is pleased to announce it has acquired the assets of Raw Materials Company Inc. (“RMC” or the “Company”) headquartered in Port Colborne, Ontario.

Raw Material Company Inc. has been locally owned and operated since 1985 providing battery collection and recycling services across Canada and in parts of the U.S. Northeast. RMC’s patented technology for processing alkaline batteries with a market leading 85% recycling efficiency rate makes it one of the most efficient operators in Canada. The acquisition provides E360S important new capabilities for diverting end of life batteries away from landfills. RMC’s operations helped shape Ontario’s world-class battery collection and recycling program and will be instrumental in its continued success.

E360S’ CEO, Donato Ardellini, said “We are excited to welcome RMC’s dedicated employees and customers to E360S. RMC has built a great business over the last 38 years and will serve as a platform for E360S to continue to build upon. The acquisition enhances E360S’ existing ability to support producers and importers of batteries in their effort to be compliant with the provincial Extended Producer Responsibility regulatory framework. E360S is currently supporting producers and importers of tires with its existing tire recycling platform. Together these two platforms demonstrate E360S’ commitment to collecting and processing materials to support long term sustainability which aligns with E360S’ goal of providing customers sustainable solutions and diverting material away from landfills. RMC’s infrastructure and capabilities further expand E360S’ geographic footprint and service offerings. E360S continues to execute on its goal of becoming Canada’s most trusted environmental management company.”

E360S’ Vice President of Sustainability, Andrew Horsman, said “The acquisition of RMC’s assets by E360S is an exciting evolution in our ability to provide full-circle resource recovery services to producers. We look forward to expanding this industry-leading solution for battery recycling across Canada and delivering on our promise of trusted environmental management that producers can trust.”

Zinc is one of the world's most commonly used metals. Approximately 30% of the zinc today comes from recycled sources. Environmental 360 Solutions is able to recover zinc from the batteries that you recycle. The zinc we recover is then reused as micronutrients in fertilizer to grow corn for biofuel.

As a result of E360S's recycled materials, farmers are able to increase their yields by over 20 bushels per acre. This is important considering our growing population and the need to make efficient use of our existing farmland.
