QUESTION: Should lead be exported through Fremantle port in WA? 23 Apr 2008 WA, Australia

I am doing a case study, at school, on whether lead should be exported through Fremantle port in WA.

What i was wondering is, how does contamination of surrounding areas occur in the process of transporting lead into or out of ports. Is it due to the dust on ships and other equipment?

Also are there any other issues with transporting lead other than contamination?

Dear Elliott,

We apologize for the enormous delay in response to your question. We hadn't any staff to answer the incoming emails. You have probably finished your research by now and I hope you got a great score. It sounds very interesting so if you would like to send us your case study, we can publish it for you on our website. I am sure it will be very useful. Again, sorry we could not be of any help.
