The Power of Lead: From Recycling to Global Impact

We understand the significance of lead as a versatile mineral and chemical element that shares nature's stage with iron, gold, and oil. Surprisingly, nature only accounts for a fraction of the world's lead supply, with an impressive 65% resulting from efficient recycling efforts. We pride ourselves on our commitment to sustainability, as most of our lead comes from the local market, supplemented by carefully sourced imports.


Our global reach is a testament to the quality of our products, with 90% of our production serving international markets and the remaining 10% catering to the military industry and leading battery manufacturers in Israel. With the global demand for lead reaching 13 million tons, its impact on various industries cannot be underrated.


Lead is indispensable in numerous applications, with 75% of its use dedicated to producing car batteries. Moreover, its versatility extends to batteries, metals, protective products against radioactive radiation, energy storage, the printing industry, and beyond. As trailblazers in the lead recycling industry, we take pride in promoting environmentally responsible practices while supplying high-quality lead for the diverse needs of industries worldwide.
