  • `Chemical fingerprints` could reveal source of mercury pollution

    Scientists have described a new method for tracking down the source of mercury pollution from burning coal. By analysing the chemistry of the pollution, it is possible to identify which region the coal was originally from. Mercury pollution in the atmosphere comes mainly from coal-fired power stations and chemical plants. Mercury is naturally present in coal and is emitted when it is burned as ...

  • Finding alternatives to mercury in small-scale gold mining

    Artisanal small-scale gold mining (ASM), largely practised in Asia, South America and Africa, contributes significantly to mercury emissions, both in the developing world and globally. A recent study investigates an alternative to using mercury in ASM. The EU Mercury Strategy1 recognises the need for global action to reduce mercury in the environment. This includes actions to help other countries ...

  • Study reveals mercury contamination in Fish Nationwide

    Scientists detected mercury contamination in every fish sampled in 291 streams across the country, according to a U.S. Geological Survey study released today. About a quarter of these fish were found to contain mercury at levels exceeding the criterion for the protection of people who consume average amounts of fish, established by the U.S. Environmental ...

  • Impact of mercury exposure from chlor-alkali plants

    An EU project, EMECAP1, has investigated levels of mercury exposure to populations living near chlor-alkali plants and the impact on human health. It found that the overall health risk was low, but was higher for some workers at the plants and for those who consumed contaminated fish or had mercury dental fillings. Mercury is a natural element but human activities, such as mining and ...
