Smelting and Refining - Lead Recycling at Doe Run


Many metals are reused after they have been used for another purpose.  This is known as recycling and occurs in many forms.  This lecture discusses the recycling of lead – often from automobile batteries – in a major, but unique, facility owned by the Doe Run Company in Missouri.
