Leclanché receives ISO 14001:2015 environmental certification for proprietary environmentally-friendly manufacturing process.
YVERDON LES BAINS, Switzerland, 1st December 2016: Leclanché SA, the leading vertically integrated energy storage solution company, announced today that it has been certified ISO 14001:2015 by the SQS (Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems). This certification demonstrates the Leclanché's commitment towards environmental management, including its manufacturing processes.
- Leclanché is the first and only global Lithium-Ion battery producer with a water-based cell production process for manufacturing. This contrasts with typical Li-Ion manufacturing processes which use chemical solvents for industrial coating which must be subsequently recycled or burnt.
- Protection of the environment is given high priority in every phase of the Company's product life cycle: saving resources by reduction of waste in manufacturing, separation technology in all areas of chemical processing and gas and water treatment through to systematic recycling and recovery of raw materials.
- The Company's environmental friendly proprietary process is applied to all of its manufactured Li-Ion technologies at both its Yverdon-les-Bains Switzerland and Willstätt Germany sites, for both its proprietary high-cycling and fast-charging lithium titanate (LTO) and higher energy density graphite nickel manganese cobalt (G-NMC) battery storage technologies.
Anil Srivastava, CEO of Leclanché SA, said: "We are delighted to receive this accreditation which underscores Leclanché's whole-hearted commitment to the environment and its protection. Importantly, this recognition combined with the benefits that energy storage brings to increasing renewables in the energy mix, as well as pioneering emission-free transportation, will further inspire our people and our industry."
Consistent with the Company's commitment to sustainability, Leclanché is a member of the Swiss Inobat Interest Organization for the disposal of batteries and began with the recycling of batteries as early as 60 years ago. The Company has previously been certified by ISO for quality under ISO 9001:2015, and the latest certification under ISO 14001:2015 complements this accreditation.
