Are batteries harmful to the environment?

Answer:

From almost all batteries the harmful substances have been removed in the last few years. Only NiCd and lead acid batteries still contain heavy metals. Many of these batteries are already collected separately in accordance with all European directives. The battery industry is developing alternatives, in order to reduce the harmful effect of these batteries on the environment. NiMH, zinc air and lithium-ion batteries are examples of these developments.
