The Doe Run Company announced is has selected Herculaneum as the location for the company’s proposed lead metal processing plant. The proposed new plant would be built on company property, near its existing lead smelter. The company will discontinue smelting lead concentrates at Herculaneum by the end of 2013. Doe Run is on track with the commercial development of the process, and intends to have the new plant operational to coincide with plans to discontinue primary smelting. In March 2010 Doe Run announced a revolutionary new lead metal production process that virtually eliminates all lead air emissions and eliminates sulfur dioxide emissions by replacing traditional high temperature furnace smelting with a new, contained wet chemical process. The company expects to spend the next couple of months completing the detailed engineering and pre-construction services. Company executives plan to present final capital and operating costs to their board before year’s end for a decision on whether to build the first commercial plant in the U.S.
