Two car batteries discarded in a pile of scrap metal. About 60% of the lead manufactured in the world is used in car batteries. Lead is an extremely poisonous element and an incorrect disposal of car batteries represents a major hazard for the environment. Small doses of lead may induce behavioural changes whereas larger contaminations may result in paralysis, blindness and eventually death.
