Mercury in Products: What the Numbers Say

For nearly 15 years, state governments across the U.S. have been pursuing, enacting, or implementing legislation to reduce the amount of mercury that goes into certain products, such as thermostats, auto switches, lamps, dental amalgams, and batteries. What progress has been made in these efforts? What challenges lie ahead? This webinar will explore trends in mercury use and mercury-containing product sales since 2001 using data from the Interstate Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse (IMERC). IMERC, a program of the Northeast Waste Management Officials Association (NEWMOA), collects and manages data submitted by manufacturers of mercury-added products to implement the notification provisions of state mercury reduction legislation. Webinar attendees will learn what these trends in mercury use mean for product stewardship programs; how states are implementing phase-outs, labeling, sales bans, and collection plans for mercury-containing products; how to find this information on the IMERC database; and what these trends mean for the long-term management of mercury from these sources.
