Mercury from Waste Treatment and Recycling

Mercury waste generated from various industries must be carefully sorted, processed, and treated for disposal to prevent polluting the environment and causing health hazards to people and animals. Typical mercury-containing wastes include mercury-containing devices from medical and industrial use, waste sludges, spent catalysts, used pipelines and valves from petrochemical industries, exposed metals, and more.

Waste Treatment and Recycling

Electrical/Electronic waste (e-Waste) is a significant contributor of harmful substances to the environment, including mercury. Mercury can also quickly enter the environment from improper disposal of fluorescent lamps, alkaline batteries, old TVs (CRT and LCD), printed-circuit boards (PCB), and more. 

Improper disposal of electronic waste pollutes the environment and will also cause health problems to the workers in these industries due to the long-term mercury exposure in their workplace.
