Crown Battery has just released a new “Zero Battery Waste Guide” that simplifies sustainable and effective battery management.
“Our ‘Zero Battery Waste Guide’ is an actionable manual for both consumers and businesses,” says John Connell, Vice President of Crown Battery’s SLI Products Group. “It’s an objective tool for anyone striving for a smaller carbon footprint and a bigger bottom line.”
The user-friendly Zero Battery Waste Guide presents findings from US EPA studies, independent lifecycle audits, Department of Energy pilot programs, Fortune 500 warehouses, Central Asia’s largest microgrid, and more than a million battery installations worldwide.
The Guide shares straightforward keys to compare batteries’ recyclability, sustainability, and lifecycle impacts, including:
- Why some batteries are 99% recycled – but others are 95% landfilled (sources: US EPA and International Energy Agency)
- What is Zero Waste, and why does it matter now?
- Battery selection strategies that reduce waste, carbon emissions, conflict zone mining, and ownership costs
- 5 common battery-killing mistakes to avoid
- Checklist: How to compare battery sustainability, engineering, and manufacturing for longer lifespan – regardless of brand
- Easy steps that strengthen your supply chain
- How to close the Battery Recycling Gap – and what’s next for Zero Battery Waste
“The Zero Battery Waste Guide also features on-the-ground insights from Crown Battery’s global sustainability initiatives,” says Connell. These include Crown’s switching to 100% renewable energy for manufacturing, sourcing approximately 80% previously recycled materials, and becoming the first battery company recognized as a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Green Power Partner.
“Crown’s Zero Battery Waste Guide shows how to close the recycling gap, improve sustainability, and make informed energy storage decisions,” says Hal Hawk, President and CEO of Crown Battery. “Reducing waste helps our environment and gives you a competitive edge – regardless of which battery chemistry or manufacturer you choose.”
