Dolav Ace has UN approval ahead of Brexit
As Brexit approaches, the UK will soon face more stringent checks on the export of hazardous materials under the UN’s Basel Convention, which governs the transboundary trade and disposal of hazardous wastes. The UN has drawn up a list of more than 6,000 hazardous substances according to the level of risk they represent, and their corresponding packaging group.
Lead-acid batteries are classed as hazardous and, in the event of greater regulatory checks, the Dolav Ace plastic pallet box provides peace of mind with its UN-approval for the transport of dangerous goods.
Dubbed ‘The Battery Ace’ by lead-acid battery recyclers, other recyclers recognise the Dolav Ace box can handle lead-acid batteries and contain strong sulfuric acid. Operations Manager David Brookes at the UK’s largest battery recycler, G&P Batteries, part of Ecobat, said: “We use Dolav bins because they are UN-approved and leak-proof.” In Spain, Recobat’s David Calleja, said: “Dolav Ace lasts three times longer.”
The Dolav Ace has undergone abuse testing by TÜV SÜD where it was dropped, crushed, spiked and rotated, with its performance compared with that of other plastic pallet boxes, out-performing its competitors in all areas. With assurance needed with Brexit approaching, the Dolav Ace passes the acid test.
