Mercury in Fish

PBS - Science and Health

In America one-in-six children born every year have been exposed to mercury levels so high that they are potentially at risk for learning disabilities and motor skill impairment and short-term memory loss. That type of mercury exposure is caused by eating certain kinds of fish, which contain high levels of the toxin from both natural and man-made sources such as emissions from coal-fired power plants. One government analysis shows that 630,000 children each year are exposed to potentially unsafe mercury levels in the womb. If the government and its scientists know about the mercury problem, why do so many people continue to be poisoned?

Over recent years NOW has examined how the influence of the tuna industry on the FDA may be putting Americans and their children at risk for mercury poisoning. Tuna, widely known for its health benefits, is one of the most popular foods on grocery store shelves. And, in 2000, FDA draft advisories presented to focus groups warned women not to eat a lot of canned tuna during pregnancy because it contains levels of mercury that can harm developing fetuses and nursing babies. In March 2004, the FDA and the EPA issued the first ever joint advisory on this topic, What You Need to Know About Mercury in Fish and Shellfish.

After February 8th, 2006 All Fluorescent Lamps Within The State Of California Must Be Recycled.

California EPA

All fluorescent lamps and tubes are considered hazardous waste in California when they are discarded because they contain mercury. (Title 22, division 4.5, chapter 11, section 66261.50) This includes:

  • Fluorescent lamps and tubes
  • High Intensity Discharge (HID) Lamps

When mercury-containing lamps or tubes are placed in the trash and collected for disposal, the lamps or tubes are broken and mercury is released to the environment. Mercury vapors from broken lamps or tubes can be absorbed through the lungs into the bloodstream. People who are particularly close to the breakage are especially at risk. Mercury from broken lamps and tubes can also be washed by rain water into waterways.

Air Cycle is proud to help facilities in California properly dispose of their lighting waste and looks forward to assisting you with your recycling efforts. Air Cycle Corporation is a national provider of recycling services. We offer recycling services for lamps, ballasts, batteries, and electronics of all quantities.

Ballasts Can Renew Lighting's Shine

By Brandon Lorenz - Building Operating Management

The latest electronic ballasts are efficient and flexible, allowing facility executives to do more with lighting systems

Facilities that have undergone a lighting retrofit within the past decade still have opportunities to make improvements when it comes to operational costs and functionality. How much a facility stands to gain depends on how recently the ballasts were upgraded.

New electronic ballasts are more efficient and give facility executives more flexibility to use lighting controls - including dimmers - in connection with fluorescent lamps. The new technologies can bring gains to facility executives who installed ballasts as recently as five years ago.
