Exide Technologies Inc has produced its Chapter 11 bankruptcy exit plan that spells how it plans to be clear of its burden by March 2015. It needs $175m in new investment as well as complicated debt for equity swaps with major lenders but much hinges on the troubled Vernon California plant.

This has already cost it $69m since April and could cost another $98m more over the next few years if it is allowed to re-open. No calculation is given as to what it would cost to get lead from elsewhere.

Exide’s disused lead-acid battery recycling plant in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, US is being demolished. The facility has sat idle since 2009 when Exide asked the local Department of Environmental Quality to pause production, a procedure that should begin the permanent closure of the plant.

Exide had to apply for extensions to remain out of action while economic conditions were unfavourable for operation. Extensions were granted in 2009, 10 and 11 but denied in 2012 because the company was unable to prove market conditions would become ripe for restarting the site within 12 months. The demolition begun at the end of October and is expected to be completed by December 1st
