Together with the whole recycling chain, we are working towards the circular economy. We are already realising the sustainable and gainful reuse of 70 per cent of car batteries, by weight.
Our realised recycling performance is well above the legally mandated recycling percentages, by weight, for drive batteries. Nearly all car importers in the Netherlands participate in the ARN Management Plan, a collective harvesting and processing scheme for batteries.
Legislation and regulations
Environmental legislation and regulations pertaining to batteries are strict. What should you pay particular attention to, for example? What about storage and transport? And which regulations must you be familiar with? All essential information neatly arranged.
Car importers that participate in the ARN Management Plan pay a management fee for the collection and processing of batteries. And the good news is that in 2022 this management fee has been reduced. For an overview of the relevant rates, click here.
