We produce lead at Red Dog and Pend Oreille operations and refine it at Trail Operations. Lead is used to make lead-acid batteries. These batteries power cars, including electric and hybrid vehicles, and are used in energy storage for renewable energy sources such as solar cells and wind turbines. Lead is also used in radiation shielding and to protect underwater power and communications cables. In 2015, Teck produced 117,600 tonnes of lead in concentrate.
