Battery recycler Doe Run responds to second lead contamination charge in 18 months

Fri, 11/15/2019 - 13:03 -- Paul Crompton

Lead battery recycling firm Doe Run Co. has been fined $1.2 million by Missouri regulators for ‘dozens’ of clean air violations over several years at its center in southeast Missouri.

The fine by Missouri Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) cites emissions at the Buick Resource Recycling Facility and claims the facility had emitted excess lead into the air over ‘several’ years.

Doe Run told BEST: “There’s no question we missed the target with certain regulations, and for that we are both sorry and committed to addressing the remaining issues."
