Our state-of-the-art solutions perform for you and the planet.

Explore our wide range of high-quality lead products, as well as special metals and alloys, that result from innovative, world-leading recycling and production processes.

Ecobat produces and supplies high-purity LME* grade lead with a purity between 99.97% and 99.99% for specific and critical requirements, such as for high performance battery oxides used in advanced lead batteries or in lead-based chemicals.

Ecobat offers innovative, highly refined soft lead products via our lead recycling and production processes. Take a look at just a few of our breakthrough offerings. We can also design and supply tailor-made lead alloys thanks to our extensive expertise and R&D capabilities.

  • Our products perform in critical applications through premium batteries that use AGM and EFB technology in automotive hybrid start/stop OEM applications.
  • The quality of our SUPERSOFT-ULTRA® lead combined with the sustainability of using recycled materials offers unbeatable benefits and improves cost-quality ratio.
  • We offer high-performance alloys, including patented PERFORMANCE GRID 009™, a high temperature durability Ba alloy.
  • Our patented SUPERSOFT-HYCYCLE® is a soft lead micro-alloy created for improved battery deep cycling performance and charge acceptance.

We produce the highest quality rolled lead sheet for the construction industry and radiation-shielding applications. Our specialized plants manufacture a premium product to industrial standards including BS EN 12588 to ensure strength, durability via consistent thickness and grain structure.

 All our lead sheet is manufactured from 100% recycled raw material thanks to our recycling loop system and environmentally sustainable processes. Alongside our core lead sheet products, our production facilities also offer:

  • Surface treatments
  • Sealants
  • Fixing clips
  • Accessories and tools
  • Insulation materials

By combining decades of lead metallurgy experience and cutting-edge casting and rolling mill equipment, we produce and supply premium anodes to hundreds of customers worldwide.

Our facilities in Europe, Africa and the US are best known for the highest quality anodes used in hydrometallurgical metal extraction (electrorefining and electrowinning of non-ferrous metals such as Zn, Cu, Ni, Co, Cd, Mn), as well as lead anodes for surface treatment. Our services include:

  • Technical service and consultation around lead anodes for metal extraction
  • Cast and rolled lead anodes after individual customer specification with:
    • Individual head and blade lead alloys
    • Straight and steer horn copper bars in different copper alloys
    • If required, fully assembled with plastic spacers
  • Lead anodes for surface treatment, e.g. lead anodes for Cr-plating

Our state-of-the-art smelting and production facilities supply a variety of special metals and alloys beyond lead, including:

  • Antimony lead alloys
  • Calcium/tin lead alloys
  • Doré silver
  • Tellurium lead alloys
  • Tin lead alloys
  • Copper lead alloys
