The role of mercury and its compounds in the environment and the economy of the United States was studied. A detailed material balance for mercury and its compounds was developed on a national basis and for selected geographical regions, including estimates of the environmental fate of all emissions. Current and projected process technologies for mercury products were examined, and estimates of environmental losses for 1973 and 1983 were presented. A set of regulatory alternatives was developed for each of the major technologies involving substantial losses of mercury to the environment, and the economic impact of these alternatives was examined.
