Citrecycle focuses on provision of safe, clean and sustainable lead-acid battery recycling systems for the most marginalised communities in emerging economies. Lead recycling in developed regions is nearing 99%, a true circular economy, but batteries leached into informal markets causes disastrous environmental, health and economic issues. By focusing on these unique markets, our vision is to be a disruptive, sector game changer.
Citrecycle was founded based on exploration of how new clean technologies developed at the University of Cambridge could be used for good, as well as for profit. By looking at different people first, we were able to address a global problem whilst unlocking a new market.
