Banner Recyclingkreislauf
With its pioneering recycling loop, Banner is fully focused on the mobility of tomorrow.
- Banner guarantees a closed recycling loop from production to re-processing
- Lead-acid batteries demonstrate a higher recycling capacity than glass and paper
- Banner invests some EUR 2 million annually in environmental protection
- Banner start-stop batteries are making a major contribution to fuel savings
- Banner is facing the challenges posed by the mobility of tomorrow
- Having spent over EUR 50 million at the Leonding location since 2011, Banner is currently continuing to pursue its ambitious Investment programme with a further EUR 15 million

Banner’s responsible business approach is clearly demonstrated by its EFB* and AGM** technologies, which are employed in conjunction with so-called micro-hybrid systems and straightforward start-stop applications. Moreover, a ground-breaking recycling loop, which facilitates the reemployment of every used battery, constitutes a benchmark with regard to resource protection and sustainability. Start-stop batteries make a decisive contribution to the environmental
compatibility of motor vehicles. In the 2016/17 financial year alone, they provided fuel savings of around 66 million litres and a reduction in CO2 emissions of some 164,000 t.


* EFB = Enhanced Flooded Battery, the cycle resistant starter battery.
** AGM = Absorbent Glass Mat, which absorbs the battery acid and thus binds it in.

BMW OEM Supplier
Banner intensifies its teamwork with premium class car.
- EFB batteries as a cost-effective alternative to AGM technology.
- Lead-acid batteries offer a high degree of recyclability.

From 2018 onwards, Banner will not only continue to supply the BMW Group with AGM batteries*, but also its EFB range**. As Banner Commercial CEO, Andreas Bawart, explains: “Deliveries are to be made to a total of four BMW Group locations in Europe and in view of our technical innovations, we are making a significant contribution to a reduction in the CO2 emissions from modern vehicles. Moreover, many of our OEM customers have recently switched to EFB batteries as a cost-effective alternative to the AGM versions.”
