Breaking the Mercury Cycle

Organization(s) Northeast Waste Management Officials' Association
Project Description NEWMOA organized a national conference, "Breaking the Mercury Cycle: Long Term Management of Surplus and Recycled Mercury and Mercury-Bearing Waste" held on May 1-3, 2002. The conference focused on the policies, technologies and techniques to address environmentally sound management and treatment of excess mercury supplies and stockpiles, and mercury-bearing wastes. It provided an opportunity for participants to learn about the current policy framework, mercury materials flow, research underway on different treatment and storage technologies, and other long term options for management of surplus and recycled mercury and mercury-bearing waste.
