Mercury Treaty

IPEN and Ecological Alert and Recovery Thailand (EARTH) held a press conference at the headquarters of the Thai Journalists’ Association to call attention to the mercury pollution issues in Thailand, particularly mercury emissions from coal power plants and other industrial sources such as petroleum and gas production and waste incineration.

The sixth session of the Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee (INC6) for the Mercury Treaty is currently underway in Bangkok, Thailand. Numerous IPEN representatives are participating in the meeting, and IPEN Co-Chair Manny Calonzo delivered an opening statement on 3 November.
