This assessment provides both an overview of sources of mercury releases in the Russian Federation, and a presentation of a considerable amount of detailed information and data about the flow of mercury in different processes. The assessment includes data on mercury released to air and water, deposited in landfills and waste dumps, as well as estimated total mercury inputs to society (intentional use and unintentional human mobilization), by source categories. The assessment provides the basis for the development of a possible mercury release reduction strategy for the Russian Federation. The data is available for the first time in English .
