MetadataShow full item record
The present assessment has been prepared as part of the ACAP (Arctic Council Action Plan to Eliminate Pollution of the Arctic) study "Reduction of atmospheric mercury releases from Arctic states". The assessment of anthropogenic mercury releases from Russian sources has been prepared by combining official Russian environmental statistics with expert estimates obtained on the basis of an assessment of mercury used intentionally or mobilised (as impurity) within different activity categories. For each activity category the flow of mercury is traced from production/ extraction to final release or disposal. The assessment does not cover eventual mercury consumption for defence industry applications.
