With a growing economy and growing population, more ownership of automobiles and renewable energy installations has led to higher demand for batteries resulting in unintended consequences for the Nigerian environment. Nigeria has become a major consumer of used lead acid batteries, with informal and illegal recycling activities for millions of used batteries done without any responsibility to the environment. This has caused widespread pollution around communities where used batteries are illegally collected, processed or smelted as scrap lead.
