Data centre professionals rely on lead-acid batteries as a reliable and cost effective energy storage resource. However, some of the basic components of these batteries (e.g., lead, sulfuric acid) are potentially toxic if mishandled. Data centre owners risk stiff penalties if these batteries are improperly disposed of.

Data centre owners should avoid self disposal of batteries. Simply throwing out a spent lead- acid battery is illegal and environmentally irresponsible. Furthermore, when selecting a partner to dispose of lead acid batteries (e.g. a battery manufacturer, a UPS vendor, a recycler), the data centre owner needs to be somewhat careful with whom they entrust their batteries.

Safe disposal of lead can be costly and lead-acid battery recycling requires strong measures which take into account occupational safety and stringent environmental controls. Unfortunately, unscrupulous brokers have been known to send battery scrap to poorer countries with non-existent occupational safety and environmental regulations.

Batteries in data centre UPS applications can be single batteries, shelves containing inter- connected single batteries, battery cartridges containing multiple batteries in a single container, or shelves containing interconnected battery cartridges.

As well as offering a range of replacement UPS batteries for all UPS applications, Source UPS provide a battery replacement and disposal service. Our trained technicians can carry out battery replacements without disruption to your business and we will handle the disposal and recycling of all battery materials in accordance with waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) regulations.
