With the enactment of the Law for the Promotion of Effective Utilization of Resources on April 1, 2001, manufacturers producing or using small rechargeable batteries became obliged to collect and recycle them. NEC subsequently became a member of the Japan Portable Rechargeable Battery Recycling Center. We collect small rechargeable batteries using the collection system operated by the center.
The collection method is shown below.
Sealed alkali rechargeable batteries
- Nickel cadmium batteries (Ni-Cd)
- Nickel hydrogen batteries (Ni-MH)
- Lithium ion batteries (Li-ion)
Sealed lead storage batteries
- Small sealed lead storage batteries (Pb)
[Batteries with an electric capacity of 234 k Coulomb or less (65 Ah or less)]
