Make Mercury History – Meet us at COP3 of the Minamata Convention

The third meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Minamata Convention on Mercury (COP3) will take place from 25 to 29 November 2019 at the International Conference Centre in Geneva, Switzerland.

On 28 November 2019 from 13:15 – 14:45 a knowledge lab ‘mercury waste management’ will take place in the foyer.

Together with INOVYN econ organises this knowledge lab to explain various solutions for mercury waste treatment and metallic mercury conversion and disposal. First hand Best Practice examples will be given with focus on on-site treatment of mercury contaminated soils, sludge, wastes and other residues as well as mobile mercury conversion for final disposal.

During this knowledge lab you will also have the chance to ask your questions in a Q/A session, both to econ as a leading technology provider for mercury waste treatment plants and INOVYN as econ’s client and pioneer of the chemical industry in regard of sustainable mercury remediation.

The Minamata Convention (also known as the Minamata Convention on Mercury) is an international treaty that aims to curb emissions of mercury.

The UNEP initiated the drafting of the Convention in February 2009.

The Minamata Convention was signed by 92 countries at the conference in Kumamoto, southern Japan, on 10 and 11 October 2013. Germany is one of the first signatories. The full text of the Convention can be read here.
