New Chunxing joins ILA
The International Lead Association is delighted to announce that Chinese lead battery recycler Jiangsu New Chunxing Resource Recycling Co., Ltd. has joined the association as its first Chinese member company.
New Chunxing is a leading company in recycling lead batteries in China. It operates several sites, including at the renewable economy industrial park in the Jiangsu region, which is dedicated to developing a circular economy centered on lead batteries.
Chairman, Mr Yang Chunming (pictured above) said: “New Chunxing is proud to become the first Chinese company to join ILA. Our company is committed to contributing to China’s circular economy and I look forward to working together with ILA to positively impact the sustainability credentials of the lead industry in China.”
Dr Andy Bush, ILA’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to welcome New Chunxing as our first Chinese member and look forward to collaborating in our work to promote the responsible management of lead worldwide.”
Mr Yang added: “New Chunxing has always been at the forefront of recycling lead in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. The company was an early adopter of ISO 14001 and 45001 and received certification first already in 2013. After many rounds of experiments in recent years, the innovative improvement of our smelting process technology has led to a 50% reduction of discard slag generated, a witness of the company’s continuous focus to reduce the impact on the environment.
“Joining ILA and signing up to the association’s commitments, including for workers’ blood lead targets, is therefore a logical consequence in the evolution of our company. I look forward to working together with ILA to positively impact the sustainability credentials of the lead industry in China.”
