Pilot Projects and Initiatives

Key stakeholders reached agreement on eight priority projects and initiatives after two dialogue meetings facilitated by the Product Stewardship Institute. These projects are intended to increase the recycling of mercury thermostats and explore ways to phase out the continued production of mercury thermostats. Stakeholders included the Thermostat Recycling Corporation (TRC); thermostat manufacturers; heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) wholesalers and contractors; demolition contractors; an environmental group; an energy utility; retailers; and government officials.

The following thermostat projects are now underway.
