The workshop on Synergies in Mercury Waste Management was held by Ministry of Environment Japan, Minamata Convention Secretariat, and UNEP/IETC. The total of 28 mercury experts came to Nomura Kohsan Co., Ltd. Kansai Factory, which is an intermediate treatment facility for fluorescent lamps, for field visit of this workshop. In order to let them know our mercury waste management system, we explained about not only our fluorescent lamp recycling system but also other mercury waste treatment technologies including mercury stabilization.
We hope this field visit will contribute to develop a proper mercury waste management system around the world.
