Do you own mercury or mercury compounds? These highly toxic substances are a threat to human health and life in general. Poisonous mercury compounds can be transmitted across vast distances by air. Once mercury enters the environment, it will find its way into the food chain.

Any mercury or mercury compounds you own are your responsibility.

The law is very strict regarding the treatment, storage, transport and disposal of mercury. Three conventions govern global mercury flows - the Rotterdam, Basel and Minamata Conventions. They aim to prevent any anthropogeneous emissions or release of mercury and mercury compounds into the environment.

Do not let your mercury endanger human health or the environment. React in a timely and responsible manner.

We have experience in the safe management of mercury, mercury compounds and sludge containing mercury. We provide permanent removal through export, treatment and disposal in salt mines.

The European Union sets strict controls for the export of mercury and its further treatment. The processing and recycling of waste containing mercury is minimized. Mercury is disposed of using the safest techniques for getting rid of this hazardous waste.

We apply the latest mercury disposal techniques, including conversion into inert salt. We apply the highest standards for safe mercury management without any impact on human health or the environment.

We will properly dispose of your hazardous waste in accordance with all regulations. We will secure all necessary permits and issue all relevant documentation.

Mercury and Mercury Compound Pollution

There is a long tradition of mercury use. It can be found in various areas of human activity, despite being a dangerous neurotoxin. Mercury is volatile and carried by air across vast distances. Once it enters the environment, it produces compounds that remain in the food chain for a long time. Measuring devices, amalgams, tooth fillings, energy saving light bulbs, chemicals and production using chlorine-alkali processes, thermometers and gold separation processes are just some examples of the everyday use of mercury.

Human poisoning and environmental pollution is a frequent occurrence. The use and movement of mercury is subject to increasing attention and inspection. Mercury recycling is minimized, and the current trend is aimed at permanent disposal to avoid any harm to people or the environment. The Minamata Convention is one document stemming from environmental accidents caused by mercury. It is aimed at preventing future incidents. More information on the convention is available at .

Certain parts of the world still separate gold from ore using the most dangerous metal in the world - liquid mercury, exposing miners and the environment to hazards. The following video clips provide food for thought on whether environmental pollution can have an economic justification:

The use, treatment and disposal of mercury is dangerous, as is its abuse. It is a powerful toxin that causes severe neural damage and genetic changes to infants:
