Canadus Battery Reconditioner
Yields Environmental Benefits for Commercial Vehicles
Electrical System Efficiency
Improves Fuel Efficiency
The Canadus Battery Reconditioner/Refresher makes a vehicles electrical system perform like new in keeping the lead acid batteries charged by preventing sulfation crystals from forming on the battery plates. But did you know this also improves the environmental impact of this vehicle? Specifically, longer lasting, better performing batteries:
- May improve fuel efficiency
- Reduces lead consumption by extending battery life
- Reduces carbon emissions
Longer Battery Life
Means Less Lead Mining
In the US, when lead acid batteries die, 96% are recycled to make new batteries in secondary smelters. Lead from recycled batteries only supply about 50% of the lead needed to make new batteries, the balance coming from primary mining, smelting and refining of lead ores. While battery recycling uses about half the energy than lead produced from ores, both processes have a significant negative impact on our environment. With a new 12-volt battery containing 24 lbs of lead on average, consider the following environmental benefits from doubling the life of a single battery:
- Conservation of natural resources: 24 fewer pounds of lead will be consumed
- Less disruption of virgin land caused by mining activities: 1,000 fewer pounds of land disturbed.
- Energy resources conserved : 17 pounds of fossil fuel will be saved
Reduce Carbon Emissions
By doubling the life of 1-battery, 46 fewer pounds of carbon dioxide will be generated by not having to manufacture its replacement. As well, if operating fuel efficiency is improved as outlined above, a further 4,100 lbs of carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced annually for each heavy-duty truck using a Canadus Battery Reconditioner.
It is clear that a fully charged, long lasting battery improves vehicle performance and help our environment by saving natural resources, reducing pollution and improving our carbon footprint.
