The report presents an evaluation of mercury emissions from the crushing of fluorescent light bulbs. Background information on mercury-containing fluorescent lamps and their disposal is also presented. These light bulbs are crushed as the first step in recovery of mercury, or disposal of the bulbs in a landfill or incinerator. Three different crushing systems are described in detail, and variations on these systems are also discussed. The report describes the air pollution controls on each system, and emissions of mercury from the crushing process are estimated. This information provides the basis for evaluating the potential for mercury emissions from the crushing of fluorescent light bulbs, and the efficicacy of available air pollution controls in limiting these emissions.
