GLRPPR Sector Resource: Mercury Use in Batteries

Title:
Mercury Use in Batteries

Abstract:
This Fact Sheet summarizes the use of mercury in batteries. This Fact Sheet covers all the types of batteries that contain mercury, including button-cell batteries. It includes the total amount of mercury in all products that were sold in the U.S. in 2001, 2004, 2007, and 2010. The information in the Fact Sheet is based on data submitted to the state members of the Interstate Mercury Education and Reduction Clearinghouse (IMERC) including Connecticut, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The data is available online through the IMERC Mercury-Added Products Database.
