WELCOME TO                         LME_STANDARD_CMYK_POS_print copy

It is with great pleasure I invite you to participate in the 4th International Secondary Lead Conference, to be held immediately prior to the 16th Asian Battery Conference and Exhibition at the Centara Grand and Bangkok Convention Centre Monday 7 and Tuesday 8 September 2015.

Personally to see this event continue to grow and become globally recognised as the only international conference dedicated to the world of secondary lead gives deserved respect to the industry and its people. The Conference is becoming the leading forum for researchers, technicians, end-users and marketers of whose work involves the many aspects of secondary lead smelting and refining.

The first Conference was held in Macau back in September 2009, followed by Hyderabad in 2011, and Singapore in 2013. This series of Conferences have been well attended with the programs receiving much positive feedback from attendees including researchers, academia and end users and operators at plant level.

The aim of this Conference is to share and increase knowledge over all segments of this vital industry, as we all know producing over 65% of the world’s lead supply. No other metal industry comes close to our mark. We 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 a further aim of the conference to open up for discussion 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 Bangkok for the 4th International Secondary Lead Conference.

Kind regards
