A New Battery Recycling Line Will Be Launched In Yaroslavl

At the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, a container filled with used batteries was transferred, which will be the first to enter a new battery recycling line at the NEC plant in Yaroslavl. The ceremony was attended by State Secretary - Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Viktor Yevtukhov and Alexander Pesterev, head of the federal infrastructure of Duracell Russia.

The battery recycling line in Yaroslavl with a capacity of 1000 tons per year will become the second company in Russia to carry out deep battery processing. After the launch, the total capacity for processing batteries in Russia will be already 6 thousand tons per year, which will make it possible to utilize a quarter of all batteries sold in Russia. 

Recall that the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia together with Durasell initiated an all-Russian environmental project for the separate collection of batteries in early 2018, as part of which the installation of containers in retail chains throughout Russia began. The project is aimed at implementing the decree of the President of Russia on national goals and priorities, according to which the safe management of waste of hazard classes I and II is one of the most important areas for the country.

We are confident that with the development of a separate battery collection system and our joint project, new processing capacities will be created that can utilize 100 percent of the country's battery waste

- told statsSecretary - Deputy Minister Evtukhov Viktor Leonidovich during an event dedicated to the opening of a new line for the processing of batteries in Yaroslavl.

Since the beginning of 2018, the project has grown from 100 containers installed in separate retail chains to 1.5 thousand, covering the main hypermarkets throughout Russia. It is expected that by the end of 2019 the number of containers will be about 3 thousand. The planned growth in the processing volume under this project should become five-fold and will increase from 500 tons in 2018 to 2.5 thousand tons in 2019.

Such high rates of development of the project have been achieved thanks to effective joint work with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Russia. Prior to the opening of new facilities, the battery processing plant was only in Chelyabinsk, however, in the process of developing a separate battery collection system, there was a demand, which required additional processing facilities

- noted the head of the federal infrastructure of Durasell LLC Alexander Pesterev.

One of the main characteristics of the new battery processing line being opened in Yaroslavl is that more than 80 percent of the equipment installed on the line is Russian-made. At the same time, foreign equipment was modified using Russian technologies

- said Victor Yevtukhov.
