Global Estimate of Global Mercury Cell Chlorine Capacity

In response to a recommendation of the UNEP Global Mercury Partnership Advisory Group in 2009, the partnership area has updated a 2004 database of global mercury cell chlorine capacity. According to data compiled, some 100 facilities in 44 nations today have some industrial mercury cell chlorine capacity.

NOTE: While the partnership area believes that this inventory is an accurate overall reflection of the global mercury-cell chlor-alkali situation, comments and supplementary information to improve the database are welcome. Please email metals.chemicals[at]unep.org.
