Are lithium ion batteries bad for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Lithium ion batteries do not contain any of the toxic materials that other batteries do, so they are considered non-hazardous waste.  The biggest problem with them is that so many are thrown out and put into the landfills.  Even though they can easily be recycled, most companies see the recycling process as a loss in their net gain.  This is because the scrap only has a worth of around $100 per ton, and the cost for the recycling process is too high.
