Pictures of Smelter - Vellore

Here are some pics of the Pb smelter in Vellore (3 hr West of Chennai).
(1) CLD surrounded by batteries (and smiling??); (2) Standing next to one of 2 rotary kiln ovens and smiling again.. (battery plates, charcoal, soda ash are all fired up for 3 hrs); (3) this is how they split the batteries and take out the plates (wow). (4) A family across the street standing on high lead level soil.
