Panasonic Energy establishes scheme to collect and recycle used dry batteries in Japan and Thailand – Accelerating circular economy concept to collect and recycle used dry batteries in Thailand – ……
Panasonic Energy Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Panasonic Energy”) is collaborating with CP ALL Public Company Limited (hereinafter referred to as CP ALL) with the aim of contributing to the reduction of long-term environmental impact. We have started collecting used dry batteries at Eleven stores and have established a recycling scheme in March 2024. We have now achieved the goal of installing collection boxes at 1,000 7-Eleven stores, which was our goal from the start of the project, and are expanding our efforts throughout Thailand.

Panasonic Energy’s dry cell batteries are widely used as energy that supports a happy life that can be used anytime and anywhere, and as a preparation for emergencies such as disasters. Additionally, as a top dry cell battery manufacturer, we are working globally to reduce our environmental impact, including gradually adopting paper packaging for dry cell battery packaging starting in 2020, and working to reduce CO2 emissions to virtually zero at our domestic and overseas factories. In Thailand, Panasonic Energy, in cooperation with CP ALL, which operates 7-Eleven, will begin installing used dry cell collection boxes at 31 local 7-Eleven stores from June 2022. We established a recycling scheme for used dry batteries in March 2024. At the same time, we collaborated with UMC Metals Ltd., a Thai steel company that owns the ECOARC(TM) Furnace, an electric furnace that melts used dry batteries into reusable and economically valuable materials. This technology makes it possible to melt Panasonic Energy dry cell batteries that do not contain environmentally harmful substances and extract reusable materials, accelerating the circular economy concept through battery recycling.
The initiative aims to reduce waste in the ecosystem and promote material reuse, in line with circular economy principles. Panasonic Energy encourages consumers to recycle used batteries. I am. Panasonic Energy is also conducting demonstration experiments in Japan to collect and recycle used dry batteries. In order to achieve our mission of “realizing a society where the pursuit of happiness and a sustainable environment are in consistent harmony,” we will continue to accelerate and expand our global efforts to efficiently collect and recycle used batteries. We will research and establish processes. More details about this release:
