Program to make the portable secondary battery recycle mark an international standard
The Battery Association of Japan (BAJ) is promoting the international standardization of the Mebius loop mark (three-arrow mark)
Currently, the three marks shown below are legally used as the recycle mark on portable secondary batteries and battery packs.
The marks displayed on batteries have not been standardized internationally, and so the number of different marks is expected to grow as each country makes laws requiring the use of their own marks.
(1) Manufacturers of batteries and manufacturers of devices that use batteries
 Limited display space
 Increased manufacturing, management, and inventory costs
(2) Battery users
The BAJ believes that these problems can be resolved by creating an international standard mark.
Through standardized use, the recycle mark will be recognized by more battery users in countries around the world, which can be expected to contribute to the global spread of recycling portable secondary batteries.
