A PROBLEM NO ONE TALKS ABOUT
Heavy metals from breaking down batteries can leach into the surface and groundwater. One small battery can pollute 167,000 litres of drinking water.
Every year over 419 million
handheld batteries are sold in Australia. 96% of alkaline batteries either go to landfill or are being shipped overseas.
LESS THAN 4% OF BATTERIES
ARE RECYCLED IN AUSTRALIA
Significant risks including; burns to eyes and skin and cancer, while batteries can cause landfill fires and contribute to the toxicity of our ecosystems, negatively affecting our wildlife.
Farming soils across Australia rely heavily on fertiliser supplements and pest management to harvest salable crops. Demand has stripped the soils of vital nutrients and voided regeneration.
ULTIMATELY, MINING FINITE MINERALS TO MAKE NEW BATTERIES WHILE WE BURY
THE EQUIVALENT IN LANDFILL IS INEFFICIENT AND DAMAGING TO OUR ENVIROMENT
ReNutrients has a suite of organic fetilisers made from recycled alkaline batteries, that removes toxic waste from landfill and provides Australian farmers with an organic, high yield liquid fertiliser to repurpose Zinc and Manganese used in alkaline batteries.
The revolutionary, patented technology purifies used alkaline batteries into a rich micronutrient fertiliser containing both Zinc & Manganese. Approved for organic input, trials have shown increased yields for growers by up to 26% when using Tracegrow’s organic liquid fertiliser, ZM-Grow, and outperformed traditional competing products in both yield volume and enrichment of crops.
We are on a mission to address the issue of battery waste in Australia whilst returning the valuable minerals used in the batteries to the ground.
