Lead concentrations in the Greater Cairo (GC) area during the past few years, it can be concluded easily that the lead concentrations was decreased a lot and its values are within the limits stated in the environmental law in Egypt. Lead smelters which were located in the GC area were re-located in industrial areas outside of the urban area of the GC, the lead emissions are greatly decreased. It was found that lead smelters are the main source of lead pollution in the GC area. The second main source of lead pollution is the Mazout combustion (heavy fuel oil).
