Financial Considerations - RMC 3500 Process
Based on a few million kilograms of material per year, RMC's alkaline battery recycling fees are no more expensive than alternative treatment methods provided that all costs, including the following, are accurately reported and factored in:
- Freight from Collections Facilities
- Freight to Sorting Facilities
- Freight to Pre-Treatment Facilities
- Freight to Furnaces
- Disposal of wastes produced by alternative treatment methods
Economies of Scale
With sufficient volumes, the RMC battery recycling process becomes increasingly less expensive than the current practices in the world. Savings continue as volumes and territories are expanded.
Over 84% of recovered materials are upcycled and sold as premium products.
Double the Efficiency
RMC 3500: 84% Recycling Efficiency
Pyrometallurgical: Maximum 44% Recycling Efficiency
*(Best case scenario for pyrometallurgical recovery of manganese, steel and zinc)
*As verified by CSA Group Guideline CSA SPE-890-15

Did you know?
Zinc is one of the world's most commonly used metals. Approximately 30% of the zinc today comes from recycled sources. Raw Materials Company 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 RMC'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.
