Doe Run announced today that it will not build a new lead processing plant in Herculaneum.
In 2010, the largest lead producer in North America announced it would close its existing lead smelter in Herculaneum by the end of 2013.
The company had proposed to build a new facility there that would use new technology to reduce emissions of air pollutants including lead and sulfur dioxide.
But now Doe Run says that won’t happen.
