Metals and Mining Industry Leaders
Without minerals and metals, the modern world would come to a standstill. Doe Run’s minerals and recycled lead are at the core of the world’s infrastructure, transportation and energy storage.
The long-term viability of our industries is critical to our communities, vendors and customers. We collaborate with other battery recycling and mining industry leaders to plan for the future of our products. Doe Run’s own mining industry leaders share their expertise through presentations and publications. View recent presentations and publications.
Essential Energy Everyday
Essential Energy Everyday, a joint initiative of Battery Council International (BCI) and the International Lead Association, increases awareness about the important role lead batteries play in our world. As a member of both organizations, Doe Run promotes public education about the importance of lead in powering our daily lives, new innovations for meeting future demand, and the environmental success of battery recycling. Battery recycling separates the lead, plastics and other materials within lead batteries, then repurposes those back into use as new batteries or other products. Modern, closed-loop battery recycling keeps 130 million lead batteries from landfills each year. Visit EssentialEnergyEveryday.com to learn more.
