Battery Builder's, LLC Sustainability Initiatives


Battery Builders, LLC has a strong reputation in the marketplace not only for our industry-leading lead-acid battery products and services, but also as a responsible steward in the area of sustainability.

We are committed to leading the industry in the area of building a fully sustainable supply chain in every facet of our operations. Our focus for these efforts is on maximizing the utilization of best practices in the mining of lead, lead production, and the manufacturing of products.

BBI is an industry champion in the area of lead-acid battery recycling. In 2021 alone, BBI utilized over 5,800,000 pounds of recycled lead alloy in the production of our products. That same year, nearly 100,000 pounds of lead paste was recycled back into our battery production.

Despite some global misconceptions about the environmental effects of lead-acid batteries, the industry is quite “green” with respect to the fact that 99% of lead-acid batteries are recycled.

As a company, we will continue to dedicate a significant amount of resources to further our efforts in the area of sustainability, and encourage our partners in the industry to follow our lead.
