- This study provides an estimation result of amount of recoverable mercury using UNEP Toolkit, and a experimental result of thermal mercury reduction for inventing a mercury recovery technology from the sludge which contains high concentration of mercury. By using UNEP methodology, the source category of primary metal production was found to be the maximum mercury discharge source in UNEP Toolkit mercury categories. According to those results, thermal treatment experiment was conducted using mercury containing waste in primary metal category. Wastewater sludge from a primary metal facility was used as a sample for thermal degradation experiment. In order to recover purified elemental mercury, the further researches of distillation and refining technology would be required.
