Re: How is mercury added to these products?




Go to http://www1.netcasters.com/mercury/ for a mercury products
database concerning products used in hospitals.  Or type "MASCO" into
Google and go from their homepage to their mercury workgroup and then to
the database, to see who did this.  The origin of this was strict sewage
discharge limits here in Boston imposed by the Massachusetts Water
Resources Authority, and a cooperative public/private approach to
finding alternatives.  If you want to know more about that project,
contact David Eppstein at MASCO and say hello from me.

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.
