East Penn's huge, EPA-approved smelter and refinery take the worry out of scrap battery disposal. We pay competitive prices for scrap batteries and our smelter is one of the few that uses a reverberatory furnance for "soft lead" production as well as a blast furnance for "hard lead" production. This allows us to safely recycle 100% of every scrap battery which creates a "worry free" source for raw materials and a cleaner enviroment.

cal Center in the industy, East Penn's engi-
neering team keeps us in the forefront of battery
research and development. We are constantly

dise is needed. Our fully equipped maintenance ga-
