ABSTRACT
The article reports that the chloralkali industry of Europe has issued a warning that a European Commission proposal to phase out exports of mercury could result in higher global emissions of the metal. Most of the mercury is derived from chlorine production in the region. The Commission, the European Union (EU) executive, expects that a phase out of exports by 2011 will make a large contribution to reducing global mercury supplies and pollution. The EU is the biggest exporter of mercury worldwide, accounting for around 30 percent of global supplies.
