How are we planning on disposing of the batteries that are in Hybrids when they are no longer good?

    Your questions is a bit misleading, you assume that they must be disposed of.

    ““Recyclers shred the hard parts — lead plates, plastic cases — and capture the acid electrolyte,” he said. “Nearly all of the recovered material goes into new batteries.”

    “The procedure currently used to recycle lithium-ion batteries at Toxco’s facility in Trail, British Columbia, begins with a deep freeze to minus 325 degrees Fahrenheit to stop the chemical and electrical activity. After shearing and shredding, the metals, plastics and chemical compounds are separated for sale or disposal. A chemical reaction converts the lithium to lithium carbonate, which has multiple uses in medicine, as an industrial chemical and to give fireworks and flares their brilliant red glow.”
