Release of Mercury From Broken Fluorescent Bulbs

This study examines the amount of mercury released from broken fluorescent bulbs. Mercury is a persistent, bioaccumulative toxin. Although human exposure to mercury largely derives from fish consumption, inhalation and dermal contact may also occur. Estimates vary regarding the amount of mercury released when fluorescent bulbs are broken on discard. This study establishes that between 17% and 40% of the mercury in low-mercury fluorescent bulbs is released to the air within two weeks of breakage,...
