Development Document for Effluent Limitations Guidelines and Standards for the Battery Manufacturing Point Source Category, Volume II. (See EPA 440-1-84-067B).
Battery manufacturing encompasses the production of modular electric power sources where part or all of the fuel is contained within the unit and electric power is generated directly from a chemical reaction rather than indirectly through a best cycle engine. There are three major components of a cell --anode, cathode, and electrolyte --plus mechanical and conducting parts such as case, separator, or contacts. Production includes electrode manufacture of anodes and cathodes, and associated ancillary operations necessary to produce a battery.
