Have any of you been involved in P2 Technical Assistance for manufacturers 
of automobile batteries?  I am looking for process descriptions and 
opportunities for pollution prevention for an upcoming trip to 
Brazil.  Harvard University is trying to build some capacity for cleaner 
production and pollution prevention working jointly with a university and a 
river basin authority.  They feel that lead release from this industry is 
one of their priorities.  Any leads would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Bob
