Destination of recycled Mercury

Destination of recycled Mercury

Found it today browsing my scrap notes.

"Tens of thousands of remote mining sites have sprung up mostly in Asia, Latin America and Africa, using as much as 1,000 tons of mercury each year...

...Mercury comes from the dozens of companies in Europe and the United States that recycle the metal from old light bulbs, batteries or industrial waste, according to the U.N. and the Zero Mercury Working Group."
