About Company

Raw Materials Company

Raw Materials Company (RMC) was established in 1985 based on a belief and vision that all consumer batteries need to be managed responsibly and not discarded into municipal landfills, regardless of type.

Our focus has always been to find solutions that are not only economical, but also solutions that are considered socially and environmentally sustainable. Our technology is forever evolving as we push ourselves to stay on pace with advances in battery manufacturing.

In a world of inefficient processing methods, RMC is very proud to have engineered a battery recycling process that recycles and reuses all of the components of an alkaline battery in a sustainable manner.

Working alongside local Stewardship and Producer Responsibility programs, RMC has managed to increase Ontario's Battery Collections and Recycling Rate to the highest rate in North America. All recycled materials are reused in industry, preventing the need for further mining and depletion of our finite natural resources. This creates jobs at RMC and employment opportunities with the companies that consume our materials.

With society's growing dependence on all things electronic, the issue of responsible stewardship of spent batteries will only become more prevalent in the years ahead.

At Raw Materials Company, we are committed to providing the world with the most efficient and sustainable battery recycling solution for consumer batteries.

Our Mission

Raw Materials Company is an international leader in the field of waste and resource recycling. The company was formed to reflect our commitment to a safer environment through the proper recycling and conversion of waste material. As pioneers in the field of energy conservation and resource preservation, we are proud of our contribution to a cleaner global environment. This commitment extends to ensuring the highest possible health and safety standards for the protection of our employees and the public at large.

RMC was one of the first environmental companies to receive the ISO 14001 accreditation. RMC has been ISO 14001 registered since 2000.

RMC 3500 Mechanical Alkaline Battery Processing

The RMC 3500 (3rd generation) was specifically designed to recycle alkaline batteries. Our process produces 100% yield of all the battery components. Recycled products are sold locally without additives or further refinement.

Materials Consumed Locally

All recovered materials are consumed within a few hundred miles of the RMC processing facility, limiting green house gas emissions associated with transportation.

Negligible Emissions

The RMC 3500 operates under negative pressure reclaiming the chlorine, ammonia and mercury vapours. Our process to recycle alkaline batteries creates negligible green house gas emissions.

Optimized Environmental Performance

Our process occupies a minimal physical footprint and draws minimal amounts of resources and energy to operate, therefore optimizing environmental performance while minimizing our carbon footprint.

RMC strives to be a positive influence in the community, both through the creation of jobs and through the continued support of local community organizations such as Port Colborne's own Port Cares.

As a responsible corporation, RMC endeavors to participate in local projects that focus on:

  • Improving the standard of living for all Port Colborne residents
  • Providing the needed support to empower our residents and encourage achievement
  • Beautifying our community

In 2002-03, RMC built the Derek Point & Memorial Garden, transforming an old industrial site to a beautiful park and one of the best vantage points for watching ships on the Great Lakes.

Each year RMC staff conducts a park clean-up and plants new flowers and trees. Benches and picnic tables have been installed for public use. Derek point features access to the Niagara Riding Trails.

All signs and structures are made from recycled materials provided by RMC's partner company, the Marine Recycling Corporation.

RMC is proud to be a Canadian private company based in Port Colborne, Ontario and plans to continue to support and strengthen our great community.
