Lead, a major component of all batteries, is an extremely useful and friendly metal that does not corrode in water and can be used in many ways:
However, this friendly metal can turn into a deadly foe if not used and handled in the correct manner. When lead is left unchecked in the atmosphere it can pollute the environment and cause lethal damage to organic life.
Lead can enter our body through the skin or through inhalation. It gets absorbed in the lungs/digestive system and circulates as ionized lead in the blood. Many a times we ingest food and drink water that carry minute particles of lead.
Being heavy, lead enters the soil and sub-soil causing the level of lead in the soil and ground water to go up. This excess lead pollutes vegetation and affects fish, meat, livestock and human beings.
Smelting is a process by which used lead from an old battery is recycled for use in a new battery. However, there are thousands of local smelters who use crude smelting processes that are not environment friendly. Some of us junk our old batteries or give it to the kabadiwala. These land up in the hands of unauthorized local smelters. Their crude smelting process contributes majorly to lead pollution.
The need of the hour is to collect old batteries and recycle the lead in an environment friendly process to protect ourselves against lead pollution. Exide has tied up with UNICEF to recycle old batteries through environment friendly smelting and eradicate lead pollution from this world.
Return your old battery to an authorized Exide dealer. For every battery that is returned, Exide will contribute to UNICEF's Child Environment Programme that will help underprivileged children who are in need of water, sanitation and hygiene.
