Medieval alchemists tried to turn lead into gold. RSR's operations are even more complex -- the company turns batteries into lead and then into money. RSR represents the stateside operations of privately owned holding company Quexco, which also owns UK battery recycler Eco-Bat Technologies. RSR recycles scrapped lead-acid batteries and other lead-bearing materials into refined lead and calcium and antimonial lead alloys.The company also offers technology and product development services to the metals industry. It operates three plants in the US.
