A Toxics-Free Future


Awareness on Health and Safety of people living near Berati former plant ULAB (Used Lead Acid Batteries)

The EDEN Center conducted a ground-breaking assessment of the area around an abandoned battery plant to test for lead contamination. After a series of stakeholder meetings and workshops, residents of Uznova (Municipality of Berat) agreed to answer questions about lead exposure and give blood samples for testing. Air, soil, and water were also tested. A report with the findings of the assessment (and recommendations) was delivered to government agencies, shared with the community, and distributed through the media. EDEN Center also used World Health Day (2011) to bring awareness to their campaign and to promote further research and action concerning this and other lead contaminated hotspots in Albania.
