  • Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change

    As rising levels of mercury in the environment pose an increasing threat of toxicity to humans and wildlife, several laws already call for industries to reduce mercury emissions at the source. Ecosystem Responses to Mercury Contamination: Indicators of Change outlines the infrastructure and methods needed to measure, monitor, and regulate the ...

  • High Tech Trash

    The Digital Age was expected to usher in an era of clean production, an alternative to smokestack industries and their pollutants. But as environmental journalist Elizabeth Grossman reveals in this penetrating analysis of high tech manufacture and disposal, digital may be sleek, but it's anything but clean. Deep within every electronic device lie ...

  • Mercury Fate and Transport in the Global Atmosphere

    Mercury, primarily because of its existence and bioaccumulation as methylmercury in aquatic organisms, is a concern for the health of higher trophic level organisms, or to their consumers. This is the major factor driving current research in mercury globally and in environmental regulation, and is the driver for the current UNEP Global Partnership ...

  • Universal Waste Handbook

    Does your facility generate any waste batteries, light bulbs, mercury-containing equipment, or pesticides? All personnel who handle these wastes must be trained to manage them in compliance with the regulations and know what to do in an emergency. Moreover, many states classify additional wastes as universal wastes, such as paint, electronic ...

  • Mercury - Cadmium - Lead Handbook for Sustainable Heavy Metals Policy and Regulation

    Although this is a handbook for policy and regulation, the major part of it is filled with data on the three heavy metals that served as examples: mercury, cadmium and lead. Their stocks, productions, prices, trade flows, uses and applications, recovery and recycling, as well as their (eco)toxicological characteristics have been collected and ...

  • Global and Regional Mercury Cycles: Sources, Fluxes and Mass Balances

    Essential themes in the biochemical cycling of mercury are the relative importance of anthropogenic versus natural sources, transformation and migration processes at the local, regional and global scale, global emission inventories of different mercury sources (both point and diffuse) of both natural and anthropogenic origin. In this regard, ...

  • A Better, Cheaper Way to Regulate Mercury

    The best way to regulate the release of mercury to our environment is through pollution prevention – placing a declining cap on the use of mercury in products and processes. Such a cap could limit mercury releases to 10% of current levels from intentional uses, and 50% of process emissions by 2010. This approach would be far more effective ...
