Recycling of Elemental Mercury-Containing Light Bulbs and Utilization of Elemental Mercury Waste

Inorganic chemical technology for recycling (decontamination) of elemental mercury-containing light bulbs and elemental mercury waste, which turns elemental mercury into harmless compounds has been developed.

Recycling of light bulbs involves chemical decontamination of mercury vapor and separation of glass and metal in a special machine.

Utilization of liquid mercury is based on the reaction of collected mercury spills with an inorganic material to form a non-hazardous compound. This compound is suitable as a raw material for the subsequent recovery of metallic mercury.
