Thank you everyone that came to us and showed interest in our company and our mission.
This year’s ICMGP (13th International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant) saw over 1,000 attendees from more than 50 countries.
An important aspect of this year’s meeting was the close timing to the Minamata Convention, which is a new international treaty for global mercury pollution control by UNEP and will be enforced this summer.
Overall, more than 400 oral presentations and over 500 poster presentations were given.
Apex Instruments is going to be involved in mercury emission inventory studies by offering mercury emission monitoring and sampling devices and technical assistance over the world.
The biggest sources for man-made mercury are electricity generating units: coal and oil-fired power plants.
