UAE: New Battery Recycling Facility

As reported by Arabic and Indian media, Royal Gulf Industries – a subsidiary of Hyderabad Castings and part of Indian Nakhat Group – will construct a battery recycling center in Ras Al Khaimah Economic Zone.

The company would invest about 17 million US-Dollar (converted) to build the country’s first environmentally safe automotive battery recycling facility. It is intended to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year. Royal Gulf Industries intends to recycle up to 35,000 metric tons of used lead acid batteries annually. That would generate 21,500 tons of lead ingots and 2,400 metric tons of plastic granules. Both materials shall be exported to India, Korea Japan, China, and Europe to produce new cases and lead acid batteries.
