UN Updates on Mercury Projects in Cement Industry, Gold Mining, Cosmetics
The cement industry is responsible for around 11% of global anthropogenic mercury emissions, estimated to be approximately 2,220 tons per year.
The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) is spearheading several initiatives and partnerships to curb mercury use in the cement industry, the gold mining industry, and skin lightening products. The projects seek to reduce mercury emissions and raise awareness.
One of the UNEP Global Mercury Partnership’s areas of focus is the cement industry, which is responsible for around 11% of global anthropogenic mercury emissions, estimated to be approximately 2,220 tons per year. Mercury is present in the raw materials and/or in the fuel used in the manufacturing process. The expected acceleration of construction activities in emerging markets and the related increase in local cement supplies will contribute to the global mercury emissions. The objective of the Mercury Releases from the Cement Industry Area is to minimize mercury releases to the environment from cement manufacture, as well as supplement existing programmes to ensure reductions are globally significant.
