What types of batteries are eligible?

Are all batteries subject to the take-back obligation?

All batteries are subject to the take-back obligation. There are two exceptions, i.e. 

  • batteries for devices used in the space industry
  • batteries intended for specific military purposes

Belgian legislation identifies 3 categories of batteries: 

  • portable batteries
  • industrial batteries
  • automotive batteries

Bebat fulfils the take-back obligation for portable, industrial and automotive batteries. Bebat has elaborated a practical decision tree to help determine which category a battery belongs to.
