Did you know that recycling and reusing products is at the core of the lead industry? The lead that is mined and milled today by Doe Run in Southeast Missouri will be manufactured for batteries and other uses, then recycled to be reused in products again and again. This circular economy enables the industry to reduce waste and make the most of our Earth’s resources.

Essential Energy Everyday, of which Doe Run is a member, has published a new brief on the lead battery industry’s innovative and sustainable circular economy, just in time for Earth Day.
