Mercury Releases from Coal Combustion Area - UNEP Global Mercury Partnership -

United Nations Environment Programme ; Global Mercury Partnership (2019)

Up to 95% of mercury releases from power plants can be reduced by improving coal and plant performances and by optimizing control systems for other pollutants. The Partnership Area aims to support continued minimization and elimination of mercury releases (to air, water and land) from coal combustion where possible. It also aims to provide technically sound information on cost effective approaches for enhancing reductions of mercury emissions, particularly for developing countries and countries with economies in transition.
