The toxic metal, mercury, occurs naturally in the earth's crust, but human activities contribute significantly to mercury pollution. To understand the dynamics of mercury in the South African environment, the CSIR - with partners such as the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, Sasol and Eksom - has embarked on a series of mercury-related research projects. The project aims to assess the extent of mercury pollution, and the degree to which mercury may be a problem in the country.
