Can dry batteries be thrown away?
Release time:2020-01-10 09:32Views:

I think many people's first reaction is "no". Do you think so?



In your impression, have you ever heard a lot of environmental protection propaganda saying that a waste battery will pollute 1 square meter of soil and dozens of tons of groundwater, waste battery should be centralized recycling?



But in fact, as early as 2006, the state banned the distribution of alkaline zinc-manganese batteries containing 0.0001% more mercury than the battery weight.At present, the disposable dry batteries available in the market are free of mercury or low mercury and do not pollute the environment. Therefore, people can treat them as solid waste and dispose them with household waste.


But there are some batteries that need to be recycled centrally.According to relevant national regulations, cadmium nickel batteries, nickel-metal hydride batteries, lithium ion batteries, lead-acid batteries and other discarded rechargeable batteries and silver oxide batteries and other discarded button type primary batteries shall be recycled by qualified units.



That, say before dry battery can't just throw, why can now again?



Batteries are devices that produce chemical reactions of anode and cathode materials under the action of electrolytes and convert chemical energy into electrical energy. The most common ones are alkaline batteries used in remote controls, nickel-cadmium batteries used in digital devices such as laptops, and lithium ion batteries widely used in mobile phones.Usually said battery toxic, mainly said that the battery contains cadmium, mercury, lead three kinds of heavy metals, their toxicity is very large, retain the environment for a long time, but also through the food chain into the human body causing chronic poisoning.



In the past, mercury was the poisonous and harmful substance in ordinary dry batteries, but by the end of 1997, nine ministries and commissions of the state had jointly issued "regulations on limiting the mercury content of battery products", which explicitly required to limit the mercury content of battery products: first, low mercury, and finally no mercury.From 1 January 2002, the sale of batteries above the low-mercury standard in the domestic market was prohibited;The sale of alkaline zinc-manganese batteries above mercury-free standards has been banned since January 1, 2006.So, the dry battery that everybody USES now regular manufacturer produces, it is to be able to be discarded along with life garbage, need not collect collect processing.
