Keeping Millions of Acres of Water Free from Mercury
Air Cycle Corporation has announced that as of March, 2013 their customers have kept over 3 million acres of water free from mercury contamination through their waste recycling efforts.
Just one gram of mercury released into the atmosphere from wastes such as fluorescent lamps and spent electronics can, over time, contaminate the fish in a 20-acre lake. If not properly disposed of, the amount of mercury recycled by Air Cycle and our customers would have contaminated the equivalent of over 3 million acres of water by March of this year. Air Cycle has reached this milestone through partnership with commercial and institutional facilities across the country to recycle wastes and protect our environment.
Founded in 1978 and headquartered in the Chicago area, Air Cycle Corporation is a sustainable solutions and technologies provider specializing in fluorescent lamp, ballast, battery, and electronic waste recycling.
