Our Lübeck plant– processing and selling mercury

REMONDIS QR’s head office, which is based in Lübeck. Our business in Schleswig-Holstein has been treating waste containing mercury for more than three decades now. We are the experts to turn to for processing particularly complex waste mercury thanks to our experience and our state-of-the-art technology. There is very little that we are unable to successfully treat and/or recover in our plants and facilities. By the way, we are also very happy to take very small volumes of mercury. Our sales team for recycled mercury is also based in Lübeck alongside our recycling operations. The team works from here supporting our customers across Europe (e.g. laboratories and the lighting industry) and supplying them with mercury in line with the EU Regulation 2017/ 852 on Mercury.

Mercury (Hg): facts, properties & uses

Heavier than expected

With a density of 13.6 kg/l, mercury (Hg) is heavier than solid metals such as lead, copper and iron. 

A liquid metal at room temperature

Mercury is the only metal that is a liquid at room temperature.

A toxic substance, a non-toxic mineral

Mercury is toxic. We use sulphur to stabilise mercury at our plant and transform it into HgS (cinnabar) – a substance free of any toxic properties. 

Mercury-metal alloys

Mercury (Hg) forms alloys – so-called amalgams – with many different metals, which can then be used in a variety of sectors, such as dentistry, thanks to their properties.

Mercury – the basis for Ohm

In 1908, mercury was used to define Ohm, the unit of electrical resistance (1 Ohm = Hg column with a fixed cross-sectional area at 0°C).
