Illegal recovery and disposal of waste batteries has always been a part of strict environmental protection. The fourth Court of punishment of the High Court of Shanxi Province selected one of the most representative typical cases for legal education. Recyclers buy used batteries without permission. The lead electrolyte is dumped in a private seepage pit in the warehouse and discharged directly into the flood discharge channel near the wall of the warehouse through the seepage pit pipe. Not only was all the income confiscated, but also paid a fine, went to jail! But also pay 333150 yuan to repair the environment!
At an executive meeting of the State Council held on 5 June, the Law of the people's Republic of China on the Prevention and Control of Environmental pollution caused by solid waste (revised draft) was adopted.
The amendment to the "solid waste Law" has increased the sewage discharge permit system, environmental protection tax, environmental liability insurance and other aspects, and reiterated the "foreign waste" prohibition order. In addition, new provisions on regional cooperation have been added to the amendment to co-ordinate the construction of regional facilities for centralized disposal of hazardous wastes.
It is worth mentioning that the Amendment Bill has amended the penalties for some illegal acts, raising the fine for a number of illegal acts to $1 million, and for some acts for which there were no specific penalties in the past, the corresponding penalties have also been added.
The draft amendment to the solid waste Law deals with the main changes in fines:
It is understood that the state stipulates that solid waste produced by enterprises must be disposed of by a third party with treatment qualifications, but at present, the disposal capacity of waste disposal providers is limited and the level is uneven.
For the battery industry regulation, has not stopped. Since the beginning of this year, although the actual output has fallen sharply compared with the same period last year, lead prices have been falling all the way down due to the weak demand side. Lead production is down about 20% from a year earlier, according to the bureau of statistics. Although there is still a lot of uncertainty on the demand side, due to the fact that lead prices have basically reflected pessimistic expectations, there may be limited room for decline in the future. Profits from lead prices have shrunk, causing many dealers to complain.
Waste batteries should be recycled with relevant certificates
In January 2019, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, in conjunction with eight ministries, issued the Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of pollution from waste lead batteries, followed by the Ministry of Transport at the end of January, issued the pilot work Programme on centralized Collection and Trans-Regional Transport system for lead Battery production Enterprises. The introduction of these two policies, the entire waste battery recycling industry has put forward new requirements, for unlicensed recyclers is a major blow! Some people choose to suspend or switch careers:
But there are fewer recyclers, and the waste batteries are still there! The implementation of waste battery recovery pilot is to solve this problem. The purpose of the pilot work is to promote lead battery production enterprises to implement the extended producer responsibility system and strengthen the prevention and control of waste lead battery pollution.
Before there was peer feedback, Hubei began to implement the new policy! The big brand has made an announcement! Require waste batteries to be recycled by their own agents! And if you sell a new set of batteries, you have to recycle a set of old ones!
Such a policy is also a test for agents. How to fix the price from the old to the new? Are recycling prices more attractive to consumers? After consumers measure it, are they willing to trade the old for the new? Will it affect new battery sales? These need to be verified by the market!
Moreover, in order to legally recycle waste batteries, some battery manufacturers may intervene to buy waste battery qualification certificates, the price may be high. It is reported that a certain unit has nearly 100 certificates, it seems that waste battery recycling will make waves.
