Automatic battery sorting system for WasteCare

WasteCare, the co-owner of BatteryBack which is UK’s largest compliance scheme for household batteries is partnering with Refind Technologies to install an automatic system for sorting of waste batteries. The system will allow WasteCare to sort more than 3,000 tonnes of batteries per year of which 2,400 are sorted automatically.

The installation will be made in a new facility in Halifax in West Yorkshire, less than 30 kilometres South West of Leeds.Whilst battery packs, cell phone batteries and button cells will be removed mechanically and sorted by hand, all cylindrical and 9V batteries will be sorted automatically.

The system from Refind has a capacity of 600-900 kg per hour. Batteries are recognised by its visual characteristics and are then separated by air ejectors in a speed of more than 10 batteries per second.
