    illegal to throw batteries away in the garbage? Many people are unaware of this fact. In 1991, the state of North Carolina rendered it illegal to discard of lead-acid batteries in a landfill, incinerator or any other type of waste-to-energy facility. The purpose of this report is to provide you with information on rechargeable batteries so you will have a better understanding on the benefits of a recycling program and possible implementation. The main points I will cover are the types of rechargeable batteries, the recycling process, local businesses currently recycling, questionnaire results and recommendations on a recycling program. Types of Rechargeable Batteries In today’s society, there are many types of rechargeable batteries that many of us may not know about. Listed below are four different types of rechargeable batteries currently being used. In this section, I will cover: what each battery is, the products they are used by and their impact on the environment. 1. Lithium Ion • The first battery is the Lithium-ion battery, otherwise known as Li-ion. These batteries usually come as small dry-cell batteries,…

  • Battery Essay

    A Battery (Electricity) is a device that makes electric current through motion of cells which are the components of the battery. They are devices that convert their inner chemical energy into electrical energy. A battery has of two or more cells which are connected together in order to give out electricity. Batteries are commonly used in single cells such as the ones used to power radios, watches and small electrical appliances that are used in everyday life. They are also used to supply energy…

  • Nickel-Caadmium Batteries Advantages And Disadvantages

    NiCd is the chemical abbreviation for the composition of Nickel-Cadmium batteries, which are a type of secondary (rechargeable) batteries. Nickel-Cadmium batteries contain the chemicals Nickel (Ni) and Cadmium (Cd), in various forms and compositions. The nickel-cadmium battery, invented by Waldmar Jungner in 1899, offered several advantages over the then only rechargeable battery, lead acid, but the materials were expensive and the early use was restricted. Developments lagged until 1932 when…

  • Lithium Battery Research Paper

    Nearly every battery in a phone, laptop or electric car is lithium based. The element lithium is a difficult substance to harvest. It must be evaporated from brine which is found in salt lakes. This brine is pumped from underground to the surface then allowed to evaporate in large pans before being separated by electrolysis. From there the lithium metal oxide is taken to a factory where it is made into battery cells [6]. At the factory the anode and cathode materials are separated for production…

  • Energizer Current Paper

    Carbon Company (NCC). Two years later in 1888 Conrad Hubert starts the American Electrical Novelty and Manufacturing Company which changes its name in 1905 to American Ever Ready. In 1914 American Ever Ready becomes part of NCC and in 1917 merges with Union Carbide Company to form Eveready Battery Company and known today as Energizer. Over the next 32 years the Eveready Battery is a full-line supplier of flashlights and batteries of all sizes. During the 1950s and 1960s, the company…

  • EV1 Case Study

    General Motors introduced the EV1 in 1996, after over 30 years of testing and exploration. The EV1 was a battery powered vehicle, called the Chevrolet Electovair. The vehicle was principally announced to fulfill the California zero-emissions decree. However, when state guidelines reformed, General Motors allowed their customer leases elapse and terminated manufacturing the EV1 2003. In the end, the EV1 cost GM over $1 billion. General Motors created a model for an electric car that they…
