Environmental contaminants inventory study no. 3 : the production, use and distribution of lead in Canada / T.D. Leah. : En36-508/41E-PDF

"This study is the third in the Environmental Contaminants Inventory Series, and the first to present data in terms of watershed basins. The report begins with a literature review on lead in the environment and the effects of lead on human health. The flow of lead through the Canadian economy is then analyzed, focusing on the production of lead and the use of lead in manufacturing. Lead releases to the atmosphere resulting from these activities and the consumption of leaded gasoline are estimated in terms of aggregated watershed basins. Background information is provided outlining the occurrence, physical and chemical properties, production processes, global economic significance, major uses of lead and future demand for lead. Lists of industries reporting lead consumption to Statistics Canada in 1972 and major Canadian producers of recycled lead are included"--Abstract, page viii.
