One of the main activities of the chlor alkali partnership is to improve awareness and disseminate information on good practices in existing mercury-cell facilities as well as to share information on non-mercury technologies. Please refer to Reports & Publications for links to available information.

UNEP Chemicals recently implemented a project to assist countries in the environmentally sound management of mercury waste.  One of the projects related to a mercury cell chlor-alkali facility in Uruguay.  Project information is available here.
