3 million acres of water free from mercury by Air Cycle Corporation customers
Air Cycle Corporation is very pleased to announce that as of March, 2013 our 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 as of March, 2013 would have contaminated the equivalent of over 3 million acres of water. Air Cycle is proud to have 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 leading sustainable solutions and technologies provider specializing in fluorescent lamp, ballast, battery, and electronic waste recycling.
