Sorting, sorting, sorting
All batteries collected across Belgium end up at Bebat in Tienen. Here they get sorted in 3 steps so they can be recycled in the best way possible:
The recycling bags are opened up and all items that do not belong in our sorting process (waste, electronics, syringes, light bulbs, ...) are removed.
A vibrating sieve sorts the batteries according to size.
The size, weight and magnetic field of a battery help us determine its chemical composition so we can categorize them into different chemical families.
