FRISCO — Exide Technologies has reached a deal to reduce lead emissions by 90 percent at its battery recycling plant in Frisco by 2012.

The deal, announced Wednesday by State Sen. Florence Shapiro, does not reveal how Exide plans to accomplish that.

Hundreds of Frisco residents have recently had their blood tested for lead contamination.
