Abstract
The past several years have witnessed perhaps the most turbulent times in the long history of mercury. The Environmental Protection Agency listed mercury as a hazardous pollutant. To prevent mercury contamination of waterways and aquatic life, some consumers curtailed or eliminated the use of mercury. The price in 1972 touched the lowest level in 22 years, with the result that the producing industry in the United States barely survives. This paper evaluates the outlook for mercury in the United States in the face of consumer disinterest, environmental control, and changing technology.
