Lead refinery closed after fire at Umicore’s Belgium plant

Wed, 03/04/2020 - 09:58 -- Paul Crompton

Materials and recycling firm Umicore’s lead refinery plant in Hoboken, Belgium, has been shut down after a fire on 2 March— the third such incident at the plant within 30 months.

An investigation has been initiated to identify the cause of the fire, which began at 18:30 CET when the plant was closed for maintenance.

A Umicore statement read that while it was too soon to assess the scale of the damage to the impacted installation, the rest of the Hoboken plant remained in operation.
