US firm Aqua Metals, Inc. is a step closer to revolutionising the lead-acid battery recycling industry after buying 12.5 acres in Nevada’s Tahoe Reno Industrial Center (TRIC).

The company is hoping to start building its first AquaRefinery™ on the land by mid-2015 and be fully operational by the first quarter of 2016.

The company claims the facility will be more efficient, and produce cheaper, purer lead by avoiding conventional smelting methods and offering a ‘greener’ alternative to the recycling industry. It could be fully operational by the first quarter of 2016.
