Further Details:


 Lead is used as an industrial raw material for storage battery manufacture, pigments, fuels, photographic material, and matches manufacturing. It is one of the most widely used nonferrous metals in industry.

 The storage battery industry is the largest consumer of lead in battery manufacturing plants, it was reported that lead losses per battery manufactured ranged from 4.54-68mg, and that water usage ranged from 11-77 gal per battery. Highest lead concentrations originated from the plate-forming area. This water has a low pH, which leads to a high concentration of dissolved lead. Waste pH values of 1.3 – 2.6. Particulate lead battery wastes is very fine, and is reported to required long detention periods (Nearly 24 hr.) for effective setting.

 Treatment of soluble lead involves, for the most part, reaction to from a lead precipitate, and sedimentation. Precipitation chemicals used include lime or caustic to precipitate lead hydroxide, soda-ash to precipitate lead carbonate, and phosphate to precipitate lead phosphate. Alum, and ferric, sulfate coagulation have also been used for lead treatment.


 In the Precipitation processes, lead is normally precipitated as the carbonate, PbCO3 0r the hydroxide, Pb(OH)2. Higher pH (up to 10.0 ph) has also been recommended. The effect of pH on lead hydroxide precipitation indicate an optimum pH of 10.0 yielded a residual lead level below 0.5 mg/1. In forming insoluble lead hydroxide, lime is the treatment chemical of choice, although caustic has been used. Improved effluent levels were observed at more alkaline pH and for long setting times.

Treatment Chemical

Treatment pH

Effluent Lead Concentration (mg/1)





Ferric Sulfate at 45 mg /1Fe Lime at 269 mg /1





Ferric Sulfate at 20 mg/1 Fe

Lime at 600 mg/1










The use of sodium phosphate (Na3PO4) has been reported for lead treatment, to precipitate lead phosphate. The solubility of lead phosphate is determined by treatment pH and phosphate dosage.


The precipitation was assisted by the addition of ferrous sulfate, which act as a coagulating agent. The treated effluent flowed to a sedimentation basin from which the lead sludge collected, dewatered in a filter.
