The most modern lead recycling plant in Europe
SUNLIGHT Recycling is the Lead-acid Battery Recycling arm of SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT SA, expanding the business ecosystem developed by the Olympia Group.
It began operating in 2014 and is the most advanced lead-acid battery recycling plant in Europe, with a total of €31 million in investment.
The new plant is situated on a 42,000m2 plot of land in the Komotini Industrial Area, and represents a business venture of SYSTEMS SUNLIGHT SA, vertically integrating its production of lead, the main raw material in batteries.
The new plant creates value for the company as well as the domestic economy, and exponentially generates financial and environmental benefits, such as:
– creating 785 direct and indirect jobs,
– contributing to meeting Greece’s environmental targets,
– reducing Greece’s foreign currency outflow by €40 million per year.
