This volume describes mercury emissions from anthropogenic sources in the United States. The anthropogenic emissions summary estimates national mercury emissions rates by source category for area and point sources including combustion, manufacturing and miscellaneous point sources. Combustion point sources that dominate anthropogenic emissions are medical waste incineration, municipal waste combustion, utility boilers, and commercial/industrial boilers. National emission estimates are based on data from a 1994-1995 time-frame. Sources of uncertainty and variability in these emissions categories are described in this volume. Data needed to improve these estimates are described in this volume.
