December 24, 2008
By Anthony Capkun

The Electrical Equipment Manufacturers Association of Canada (EEMAC) has formed a new Battery Section that will work with battery manufacturers and government regarding legislative initiatives, disposal and recycling, environmental issues and regulations. The Battery Section will also work closely with similar associations, such as the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) on the various issues facing the battery industry.

Founding
members Energizer Canada Inc. and Procter & Gamble Inc. would like
to implement change that will positively impact their industry. John
Bailie (consultant, EEMAC Battery Section) and Wayne Edwards
(vice-president, EEMAC) will work to establish and promote the various
recycling and environmental programs for all types of batteries.
