Poinsoning Wildlife: The Reality of Mercury Pollution
Stories about wildlife being affected by mercury contamination have been crossing my desk for several years now. And with each new story, it appears that a new species is being featured. First was the story of the loon, whose magical call is recognized by millions of us who live and vacation in the beautiful northern lakes stretching from Montana to Maine. Then we heard about a Florida panther that died with very high levels of mercury; the eagle found in Indiana with equally high levels; and songbirds in the Northeast that are being exposed to mercury through eating contaminated insects.

Global Mercury Assessment 2013: Sources, emissions, releases, and environmental transport
United Nations Environment Programme. Published by: UNEP, 2013 This report presents sources of mercury emissions to air and water. It presents estimates of anthropogenic emissions to air from various sources based on data from 2010 and estimates for releases to aquatic environment. The report also presents the latest information on atmospheric and aquatic chemistry , fate and transport. It is an overall summary report for the policy makers based on a technical background report. Language(s): English

Assessment of Excess of Mercury Supply in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, 2010-2050
This study attempts to understand the dynamic flux between mercury supply and demand in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region. Current and future regional supply of mercury includes the continued mining of mercury, the occasional decommissioning of chlor-alkali facilities, the recovery of mercury from used products and wastes, mercury by-product from other mining operations and natural gas production, and the increasing use of mercury-free alternatives to mercury products. This is compared with the regional demand, of which the vast majority is in mercury-containing products and the chlor-alkali industry, in order to estimate the quantity of excess mercury which may need to be stored in the region. The purpose is to inform regional authorities and encourage early planning to adequately manage the imminent supply of excess mercury.

Mercury and the GEF
The GEF has a long standing commitment to the elimination of global contaminants, including mercury, which dates back to 1995 when the GEF Council recognized the need for action on mercury. In recent years the GEF has taken a significant step towards addressing global mercury pollution. Currently the GEF is supporting the Intergovernmental Negotiation Committee (INC) process to help advance the development of a global mercury instrument through funding of national and regional projects to help elucidate the challenges of managing and eliminating the use of mercury.

Summary of Supply, Trade and Demand Information on Mercury, 2006
The report is based on information provided by governments and other stakeholders, as well as publicly available comprehensive trade statistics for mercury. According to UNEP, governments attending the conference are aiming to conclude discussions on a global legally binding treaty to minimize risks to people and the environment from exposure to mercury. The UN agency notes this would reduce cases of neurological and behavioural disorders, and other health problems linked to mercury, as well as the contamination of soils and rivers caused by man-made emissions of the metal.

Assessment of Excess of Mercury Supply in Latin America and the Caribbean, 2010-2050
The future principal sources of mercury in the Latin American and Caribbean region were identified as that recovered as a by-product of mining operations, and recovered from the closure/conversion of mercury cell chlor-alkali plants. A base case scenario suggests that mercury supply may exceed demand as easily as 2015 with total excess easily arising between 2015 and 2050 possibly amounting to over 8,000 tonnes. According to an alternative minimum storage scenario, in which it is assumed that some by-product mercury continues to be exported, and it is assumed there is a generally slower increase in the generation of by-product mercury, the quantity of mercury accumulated may be closer to 2,000-3,000 tonnes.

Assessment of Excess Mercury Supply in Asia, 2010-2050
According to the scenarios assessed in the report, mercury supply and demand in Asia are projected to reach a rough equilibrium beginning about 2014-2015. After 2017 the urgency of an Asian mercury storage capability is likely to depend on the rate of demand reduction. Substantial excess mercury can be expected in Asia after 2030. The quantity of excess mercury, mostly accumulated between 2030 and 2050, would likely amount to just over 5,500 tonnes. According to an alternative policy scenario, in which regional authorities may decide to move forward the storage of excess mercury, the quantity of mercury accumulated may be as high as 7,500 tonnes.
