Re: How is mercury added to these products?



You forgot burning coal and treatment of seeds, among several missing processes.

Subject: How is mercury added to these products?

hello all.

i am compiling a rather exhaustive list of products and processes that
involve or contain mercury.  there are a few products that are listed in
various references, but i can't find how/why the mercury is added or becomes
a contaminant. 

NO LENGTHY DETAILS necessary, but any input on the following items would be
greatly appreciated.

- bronzing
- printing ink
- vinyl chloride resin
- composites (i assume from the resins)
- paper coating (aside from mildewicide on wallboard)
- textile printing
- primary copper smelting and copper foil production
- adhesives/sealants
- glass
- finger print powder
- ion engines
- slip ring in packaging production equipment

Thanks so much.
