Mercury as a Global Pollutant            


From July 28th – August 2nd 2013 the 11th ICMGP International Conference on Mercury as a Global Pollutant will take place in Edinburgh, Scotland. www.mercury2013.com.


Over 1,000 professional and academic experts on all aspects of Mercury behaviour and control will gather together to discuss a variety of Mercury monitoring and treatment topics.


The negotiations of the Global Mercury Treaty are to be completed in early 2013. The Edinburgh conference, therefore, presents a very timely opportunity for information sharing between the scientific community and policy makers based on the agreed text. Each day of the Edinburgh meeting will start with discussions that highlight some of the related challenges ahead in an effort to promote understanding and foster increased understanding of the treaty.


The five day event will continue with parallel sessions and hundreds of posters covering all areas and aspects of mercury research. It will include research relevant to UNEP’s Mercury Programme and actions that countries may need to take to implement the mercury treaty. Topics will include waste, chlor-alkali, coal combustion, gold mining, dentistry as well as the movement, behaviour and effects of mercury in our environment. Once again, the UNEP Global Mercury Partnership will host a special session dedicated to its work. The conference will be accompanied by the largest ever exhibition of organisations including commercial companies that provide services for mercury management, monitoring and control from all sources. There will also be public outreach activities to help bridge the gap between those that know and those that need to know. Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the world. Where better to look from the past into the future?
