Welcome to the
3rd International Secondary Lead Conference

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 3rd International Secondary Lead Conference which will be held immediately prior to the 15th Asian Battery Conference at the Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore Monday 9 and Tuesday 10 September 2013. 

This series of Conferences is now recognised as the only international conference dedicated to the world of secondary lead. The Conference is a leading forum for researchers, practitioners and users whose work involves the many aspects of secondary lead smelting. 

The first Conference was held in Macau in September 2009 and the second Conference was held in Hyderabad, India 2011. Both Conferences were very well attended with the programs receiving much positive feedback from attendees including researchers, academia and end users and operators at plant level. 

The lead industry is focused on recycling with over 65% of the world's lead supply coming from secondary sources. The aim of this Conference is to share and increase knowledge over all segments of this vital industry. 

This Conference will bring together all aspects of secondary lead smelting; discussing plant design, smelting regimes, refractories, burner design, slag formation and structures, pollution and environmental control amongst other presentations. It is the conference aim to open up all aspects of plant operations and control as to give not only operators, but people interested in secondary smelting a better understanding of the processes involved in the industry. 

I would like to again extend our warm welcome to what will be an exciting conference and look forward to seeing you in Singapore for the 3rd. International Secondary Lead Conference.
