Trends in Mercury Use in Products: Summary of the IMERC Mercury-added Products Database

IMERC, funded by a grant from U.S. EPA, prepared a report that summarizes mercury use in products sold in the United States in 2001 and 2004 from information submitted by hundreds of manufacturers of switches and relays, dental amalgam, thermostats, lamps, thermometers and other measuring devices, batteries, and chemicals. The purpose of the report is to identify trends in mercury use in these product categories and opportunities for further reductions and improvements in the collection and recycling of mercury waste from products.
