Congress directed that the Mercury Study evaluate many aspects of mercury emissions, including the rate and mass of emissions, healthy and environmental effects, technologies to control such emissions and the costs of such controls. The information contained in the volume will be useful in identifying source categories that are major emitters of mercury, in selecting potential candidates for mercury emission reductions and in evaluating possible control technologies or materials substitution/elimination that could be used to achieve these reductions. The emissions data presented here also served as input data to EPA's long-range transport model which assessed the dispersion of mercury emissions nationwide.
