Our lead smelter at the First National Battery plant in Benoni, Johannesburg, allows us to harness the following major benefits:

  • More control over quality of recycled lead
  • Continuity of supply
  • Relatively high recovery rate of lead from scrap
  • Ability to reprocess dross and filtered materials

Our investment in the smelter reinforces our commitment to the recycling of scrap batteries. More than any other, the lead industry has been subject to intense scrutiny regarding environmental problems. As a result, First National Battery has exceeded expectations in our implementation of anti-pollution measures and controls.
