recycle batteries Malaysia

Why recycle batteries?

There are many reasons why batteries should be recovered and recycled rather than just being sent to landfill.

Batteries are made from a variety of heavy metals, such as lead, cadmium, zinc, lithium, and mercury. These metals are non-renewable and can be recycled an indefinite number of times.

Some of these metals, particularly lead, cadmium, and mercury, are extremely toxic. These harmful substances permeate into the soil, groundwater and surface water through landfills and also release toxins into the air when they are burnt in municipal waste combustors. Also, cadmium is easily absorbed by the plant roots and therefore accumulates in fruits, vegetables, and grass. The polluted water is consumed by animals and humans, causing health problems to both. Landfills also generate methane gas leading to the ‘greenhouse effect’ and global climatic changes.

As studies have shown, exposure to such metals for a long period of time can cause many health problems, such as nausea, abdominal pain, liver and kidney damage, skin irritation, headaches, asthma or sometimes even cancer.

We are non-profitable Alcad’s collection point for ni-cd battery recycling in Malaysia

But there is nothing wrong with using batteries, as long as they are being disposed of properly. Each battery chemistry has its own recycling procedure.

Jumbohan Marketing made a significant commitment to protecting the environment by becoming a non-profitable Alcad’s collection point for battery recycling in Malaysia.

So far, we sent approximately 5000 cells of batteries for recycling to Alcad. Jumbohan has a capacity of collecting up to 100 tons of used batteries. The batteries are dismantled, recycled or safely disposed of in Alcad’s recycling facility in Sweden.

Alcad batteries are manufactured with the strongest environmental standards for manufacturing and all the materials are fully recyclable.

led emergency lights kuala lumpur convention centre malaysia

Effective emergency lightning systems provide you with the fastest, panic-free evacuation during electrical power failure, fires, weather hazards or other emergency situations. But not all emergency lights are created the same. Due to many advantages, LED emergency lights are becoming the top choice for emergency lights.

Do you want to learn more about installation, maintenance and repair of LED emergency lights at your premisses in Malaysia? Call +603 6189 0909 to speak with our technical team.

Advantages of LED emergency lights

  • Energy efficiency

LED emergency lights are more energy efficient compared with equivalent fluorescents and incandescent lights. This is due to the fact that LED lights produce less heat. LED lights also draw much less power than traditional lighting.

  • Long life span

The life span of LED emergency lights are 6 times longer compared with other types of traditional lighting. This consequently add to the environmental value to the use of LED lights, because it means lower carbon emission. From a user perspective, this also means reduced requirement of frequent changes of the lights.

  • Brightness

LED emergency lights are much brighter than other kinds of light. Typical 84 watt fluorescent light can be replaced by a 36 watt LED light and give the same level of illumination. Therefore, LEDs are the best to use in evacuation in a event of emergency situation.

  • Visually pleasing, space-efficient and robust

The most common question we get from our customers in Malaysia is about the difference of maintained and non-maintained emergency light fittings.

Non-maintained emergency lights are made for use in emergency situations only. These lights are designed to turn on in an event of a power failure, illuminating the exit routes of the premises. They are normally switched off, but the batteries are constantly being charged. The LED light of the battery is green, which shows that the battery is fully charged.

On the other side, the maintained emergency light fittings operate as a normal light, same as all the other lights at the premises. The only difference is that the maintained emergency light will continue to operate during power failure as well, but at a lower illumination level.

 Which emergency light fittings should you use?

We cant say that one fitting is better than he other. For instance, the escape route area need only non-maintained emergency lights. On the other hand, the communal area usually have maintained e-lights that will be used during the normal day as well as during power failure.

At Jumbohan Marketing we provide both, maintained and non-maintained emergency light fittings, according to the individual need of each customer. For more information you can call us at +603 6189 0909 or go to Contact us.
