Abstract

Mercury is one of the most toxic heavy metals found in solid and liquid waste disposed by chloro-alkali, paint, paper/pulp, battery, pharmaceutical, oil refinery and mining companies. Any form of mercury introduced to nature through any means is converted into a more toxic form such as methylmercury chloride (as produced by aquatic organisms) which usually accumulates in the tissue of fish and birds.
