Mexico’s plans on secondary lead smelting regulations are too weak to cope with the high amount of used car batteries in Mexican factories, according to US lead-acid battery recycler RSR.

The proposal wants to set limits for lead emissions from the exhaust stacks of secondary smelters. According to RSR, almost one billion pounds of spent lead acid batteries are exported to Mexican recyclers each year.
