Sustainability

Nilar batteries are made with minimal hard-to-recover raw materials. Unlike most industrial batteries, Nilar Hydride® batteries do not contain, nor need cadmium, mercury or lead to deliver powerful results. And unlike many other chemistries, which are often more costly to recycle than mine, nickel is an actively recycled and reused material.

Nilar batteries are are designed with recyclability in mind. From the nickel used to power them to the seals and casing used to the contact plates transferring the energy, the different elements that make up the battery can be reused in industrial manufacturing, such as the production of new Nilar batteries. The Circular Economy philosophy has been a central part of the R&D process for the Nilar Energy series and the Nilar Energy+ series, reducing cost and the environmental impact of the batteries.

Handling of battery waste in Europe is regulated according to Battery Directive 2006/66/EC and EU Member state national legislation. Nilar takes full responsibility for taking back Nilar batteries and for the recycling process of them. Returned batteries are systematically recycled and the materials are reused either in new batteries or in other industries. When your Nilar battery is ready for disposal, it is recommended to send the battery to the local Nilar battery dealer or to Nilar AB.

Nilar innovations for high recycling efficiency:

•Developed method for the re-use of battery material in our
production line.
• Fully recyclable.
• Low usage of hard to recover raw materials.
• Produced in Sweden with 100% renewable energy.

 

Nilar products are compliant with the following directives and
regulations:

•EU-directive 2006/66/EG (‘Battery Directive’). The batteries
do not contain the heavy metals mercury or cadmium.
• Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive
2012/19/EU.
• Restrictions of certain hazardous substances according to
RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU.
• Nilar products are in compliance with Regulation (EC)
No. 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation,
Authorization and the Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).
