Understanding the Source of Lead: DIfferentiating Between Leaded Paint and Leaded Gasoline

ND LIT is working to analyze different samples of paint and gasoline in order to determine if there is any way to tell the source of lead in samples. Recently, ND LIT has found a link between Bismuth and lead based paint that we are now looking into. Knowing where the lead is coming from in samples can help to design specific approaches to reducing lead levels in samples.
