The 21st International Lead Conference is taking place at the Melia Princesa hotel in Madrid, Spain, 19-21 June.

Pb2019 is the premier event for analysis, debate and on all matters relating to lead, including mining, production, batteries, recycling and the environmental management of the metal and its compounds. 

This year our programme includes the latest market trends and forecasts from world-renowned industry experts and analysts together with updates on breakthroughs in advanced lead battery technology from the newly-formed Consortium for Battery Innovation.

Pb2019 will also be hosting a lead exposure management workshop for EHS professionals to exchange best practice and continue the industry’s drive to maintain lead occupational exposure at the lowest practicable levels.

The workshop will include a panel of expert speakers and a practical hands-on session to facilitate knowledge transfer between companies.

And we will be debating the role of material stewardship in driving the sustainability of the lead metal and lead battery value chains.

In a year where the lead and lead battery industries are facing significant legislative developments, Pb2019 will provide delegates with a comprehensive overview of the latest regulatory changes and how they could affect companies.
