RBRC expands battery program
Nickel Zinc rechargeable batteries now accepted through
The Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation (RBRC)
has expanded its rechargeable battery collection program
for the first time in seven years to encompass a new
chemistry, Nickel Zinc (Ni-Zn). Ni-Zn is now the fifth
rechargeable chemistry recognized by RBRC, joining Nickel
Cadmium (Ni-Cd), Nickel Metal-Hydride (Ni-MH), Lithium-ion
(Li-ion) and Small Sealed Lead (Pb) rechargeable batteries.
PowerGenix, a manufacturer of rechargeable Ni-Zn batteries,
has become the first manufacturer of Ni-Zn technology
to become involved in RBRC’s Call2Recycle program.
The Ni-Zn rechargeable batteries will be branded with
an RBRC Battery Recycling Seal, letting consumers and
businesses know that they may be recycled at more than
50,000 RBRC collection sites in the United States and
