ABSTRACT

Mercury has very peculiar property and can be used in a variety of way at industrial sites. Even when emitting to air, soil, and aquatic environment, its toxiccomponents never disappear. It continues to cumulate inside living things and ends up being taken by apex predators, humans. Most of the mercury-containing waste are being thrown out or incinerated at the developed space with other wastes, which is not an environment- friendly way. This study suggests the method of classifying and managing mercury-containing wastes in an environment-friendly way. Results are as follows. First, supervision and management standards should be intensified to prevent damage from polluted materials during the process of purifying mercury. Second, the storage capacity of the facility handling unused mercury should be expanded and the rate of reuse should be increased to prevent pollution from mercury-containing wastes.
