ABSTRACT
The article reports that the European chlorine industry's voluntary agreement for the safe, permanent, storage of up to 11,000 tonne of surplus mercury was generally welcomed at a European Environment Bureau conference. The chlorine industry supports underground storage of metallic mercury because it believes this can be done safely. In addition, it avoids the process of converting liquid mercury to a solid state, which could have a negative impact on the environment.
