What happens to the acid when we recycle a battery?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are two main ways that battery acid is handled when a battery is recycled.  The first involves neutralizing the acid with an industrial compound similar to household baking soda.  This actually turns the acid into water.  This water is then treated, cleaned, and purified.  After all this, it is released into the public sewer system.  The second way of going about recycling battery acid involves processing it into sodium sulfate, an odorless powder that’s used in laundry detergent, glass, and textile manufacturing.
