Carbon Footprint Analysis

We have conducted an independent Peer Review on our battery processing technology in addition to a Carbon Footprint Analysis.

Optimized Environmental Performance

The RMC process is largely mechanical so we do not emit the green house gas stack emissions associated with furnace or smelting processes.

Our battery process occupies a minimal physical footprint and draws minimal amounts of resources and energy to operate, therefore optimizing environmental performance while minimizing our carbon footprint.

Environmental Compliance Approval

The RMC process operates under an Ontario Ministry of Environment Environmental Compliance Approval.

RMC 3500 Technology

We believe that our technology to recycle alkaline batteries is the most environmentally advanced and efficient technology available in the world today. Visit the RMC technology page to find out more.

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.
