      Every year a lot of lead products are imported to Iran; despite Iran is located in the lead mineralization zone and several lead reserves and resources occur in Iran. Meanwhile, unfortunately Iran?s lead exports are in the form of lead concentrate, in other words, in form of raw materials.
   Undoubtedly, there is possibility of employing technologies in order to use raw material to produce industrial products. Increasing the productivity of existing factories is the other possibility to reduce the export of raw lead material and decrease the amount of lead product imports.
   The above goals can be achieved if adequate research work is carried out. In this way not only can we approach the above goals, but also many other results can be obtained such as increasing job opportunities, improving economic situation and preserving natural resources. Achieving to the above goals is the prerequisite of economic development.
   On the other hand, economic development will be stable, if environmental issues are considered. Therefore, the studies of relationships between economical and environmental problems are necessary for having a stable progress. In this paper the suitable ways for stable development in lead industries are presented.
