WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RECYCLING LEAD
Lead is procured as a natural element from mining. Subsequently, the overall quality of recycled lead is virtually identical to that of primary lead procured as a natural element from mining.
The recycling of lead goes a long way to sustainable development, taking the strain from non-renewable resources and reducing CO2 emissions using energy efficient recovery methods.
In fact, more lead is now being produced through recycling than it is through mining. Primary lead that’s mined is effectively used to ‘top up’ the lead that is already being circulated through efficient recycling.
