Thinking global & green

The HOPPECKE return and recycling system for lead-acid batteries constitutes a substantial contribution to the protection of the natural resources. We have been operating an own company smelter for more than 55 years. This ultra-modern facility is expanded continuously and is operated at the latest state-of-the-art. Furthermore, we are working actively on the presentation of recycling directives and standards. However, HOPPECKE does not only set standards in relation to recycling. Sustainability starts for us already with the product development. Our products and services also contribute to a great extent to the achievement of the climate change objectives.

We actively help shape the turnaround in energy policy!

  • Environmentally Friendly Product Development
    Our products are specifically developed in a way that they can be used reliably and for a long time and may also be recycled.
  • Energy-Efficient Products and service solutions
    The goal of our products has always been to reduce the energy demand.
  • Waste Prevention and Recovery 
    In our main factory in Brilon, waste materials are recycled almost completely. The primary goal of HOPPECKE is, however, the prevention of waste of all kinds.
  • Recovery and Recycling
    of used batteries in our own waste management company.
