Fire provoked mercury spill in R&D institute

Broken containers with mercury were found after fire happened in one of Moscow R&D institutes located in Nagorny proezd. Maximal concentration of this hazardous substance in air was 40 times higher than permitted norms. More precise information will be available later, announced Moscow Ministry for Emergency Situations.

Vladimir Moskalenko, Lead expert of GCE Group comments this emergency situation:

“This is a significant excess! Mercury is a toxic substance and influences negatively on humans. In fact, mercury is a poison for our blood. Respiration organs must be protected to avoid poisoning steams inhalation. Alcohol solvent has substituted mercury in thermometers nowadays. Collection of mercury is a difficult task. Small mercury balls penetrate the ground easily. Disposal of mercury is a very complicated and poorly researched process.”
