GLRPPR Sector Resource: A Guide to Mercury Reduction in Industrial and Commercial Settings

A Guide to Mercury Reduction in Industrial and Commercial Settings

This joint effort of the Inland Ispat Indiana Harbor Works, the Bethlehem Steel Burns Harbor Division, the United States Steel Gary Works, the Delta Institute, and the Lake Michigan Forum shares the results of the voluntary Mercury Pollution Prevention Initiative. The report provides guidance to suppliers and other industrial facilities to assess their mercury reduction efforts. The report begins with background information on mercury and presents a case study of the mercury reduction initiative at the three northwest Indiana steel mills (including inventory findings and reduction schedule). Finally, a guide to developing a mercury reduction program, based on the experiences of the three steel mills, is presented in order to assist others. (PDF Format; Length: 52 pages)
