The organisers encourage submissions from presenters over the full spectrum of topics relevant to the secondary lead industry. Papers can be research and/or practice based, with a focus on providing attendees with up to the minute information and knowledge whilst promoting a better understanding and encouraging mutual cooperation.The secondary lead industry is one of the least understood industries in the metals world, although contributes over sixty percent of the lead supplied every year.
