Garbage Recycling: How to dispose of used laptop batteries in India

Although many shops not connected to the grid in Bangalore, but thanks to a product called “UrJar” India’s night or start slowly lit up. The technology developed by IBM Research India, it can be discarded refurbished laptop battery to be able to lighting, mobile phone and battery-powered fan. 40% of the world’s population still live in areas lacking a reliable electricity supply, so this technique can not only bring their bright, but also provide much-needed backup power for local electricity.
Discarded worldwide each year at around 50 million laptop batteries, these batteries are really completely useless it? Not necessarily. These batteries batteries is still a certain degree of activity, can be removed for low power supply unit. IBM scientists Vikas Charles Dan (Vikas Chadan) team led by removing the waste from the laptop battery lithium batteries, and then made into a battery pack. They increase the battery charging circuit in the renovation, converters and other electronic components required to power external devices. With this configuration, UrJar for 3 watt LED bulb, 6W DC fan and 3.5 watt power mobile phone charger 4 hours.
UrJar is Hindi, translated means “energy box.” Researchers have developed three prototypes UrJar, and provide it to use five vendors in Bangalore. They found that during the test, a single charge, if the illumination 4-6 hours per day, UrJar can use up to 3 days. This has been a huge upgrade over the existing lighting equipment vendors, who usually only use less than three hours, and needs to be recharged every day. For vendors, it can not only provide reliable lighting for them, but also to extend the hours of operation.
Researchers estimate that they can be about 600 rupees ($ 10) 1000 monovalent development UrJar. Material fee includes packaging, electronic components, 3-watt LED bulb and mobile phone chargers. But IBM does not intend to sell the product, but to make it available free of charge to developing countries to reduce “energy poverty” situation, but could have been thrown on the garbage heap of e-waste recycling.
Old battery disposal basics
UrJar test allows us to understand one thing: Most of the rechargeable battery is not completely lost the use of waste. So, what should be how to deal with old batteries it? You can refer to the contents:
- Alkaline batteries: This type of non-rechargeable batteries are commonly used in toys, smoke alarms or remote control, for example, on the 7th, the 5th or the 1st battery. When these batteries are depleted, many states in the United States directly into the trash can. California is the only state to recall these batteries, the state will be treated as hazardous waste, waste alkaline batteries.
- Rechargeable battery: As often contain heavy metals and therefore should recycle these batteries. When the battery voltage is higher than 9 volts, should be wrapped with tape at both ends.
- Portable electronic device’s battery: laptop or cell phone battery removed, to large retailers for recycling. In addition, mobile operators have a corresponding repurchase program, specialized recycling old mobile phones, tablet PCs or used batteries.
- Button batteries: inside watches and hearing aids often use this battery, which contains a lot of metal can be reused and should therefore be recovered.
- Automotive Battery: The battery should be sent to specialized waste management center. But you can also be sent back to the many car dealer or service center for processing.
If you do not know a recycling center in your area where you can Call2Recycle interactive map to find.
