Mercury

Panchevo - spilled mercurySince 2004, Arnika - Toxics and Waste Programme participated in the international negotiations about new treaty on mercury which is called Minamata Convention since October 2013 when it was signed in Kumamoto, Japan. We were originally active especially in the Czech Republic with the aim to make Czech chlor-alkali plants  stop using mercury in chlorine production, which was partially achieved (se the web for hot spots of Spolana Neratovice and Spolchemie Ústí nad Labem).
