General information about batteries.
You can find information on legal aspects related to batteries on the pages of the European industry associations as well as the associations of the individual European member states and our partners in the battery industry.
At European level, the following industry associations supply information on the regulation of transport, storage, safety and disposal of batteries and accumulators:
The European Battery Directive 2006/66 / EC is the most important legislation for batteries in the EU market.
The directive applies to all types of batteries, i.e. on
The legislation contains provisions on the use of certain substances in batteries and the regulation of labeling requirements. In the case of portable batteries, European legislation also envisaged specific collection targets, which should have been achieved by September 2012, latest 2016 and have now been achieved.
In particular, the
For example, some warning and indication symbols on battery packs of the VARTA Microbattery:
Do not throw into fire
Do not charge

AT VARTA MICROBATTERY, ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF CORPORATE GOALS
Responsibility for the environment is manifested throughout the entire life cycle of our products. We place uncompromising demands on environmentally friendly development and manufacture and require our products to be safe and have a long service life, whereby sustainable disposal represents a key factor. Thanks to pioneering technologies, we can reduce any long-term impact on the environment, or even completely avoid it. With our own environmental protection guidelines, we set higher standards than those specified by legal regulations.
SUSTAINABLE – FOR AN INTACT ENVIRONMENT
Only with sustainable concepts for ecologically safe production and environmentally compatible products can the growing need of society for an intact environment be fulfilled. A major contribution to sustainability is made by VARTA Microbattery products due to their innovative technological structural features, design, environmentally compatible use of materials, and efficient, virtually total recyclability. Our certified environmental management system ensures compliance with highly stringent in-house guidelines at every process step.
We assess possible environmental impacts of our products during product development over the entire life cycle; We strive to conserve resources through economical material use, recyclability and reusability.
In production, our focus is on advanced technologies with integrated environmental protection procedures, saving resources and reducing emissions.
Through information, qualification and incentives the sense of responsibility of all employees for environmental protection is regularly promoted and expanded.
We are working with the supplier industry to follow equivalent environmental guidelines. Cooperation with qualified waste disposal companies until final disposal of the waste is a key obligation for us.
We pay attention to the consumption-optimized use of energy and resources in all research and development activities as well as in production.
We strive to continually reduce specific energy consumption and increase energy efficiency in a continuous improvement process.
Our management ensures that the necessary financial and structural prerequisites for resource conservation are met.
All employees are included in the implementation and execution of the energy management system.
The energy effects of our production processes are examined, assessed and, if necessary, optimized. The focus is on energy efficiency in the development and acquisition of new production plants. The use of new technologies in the production and processing of our products ensures that the energy is used efficiently.
