Abstract

Results are presented for hydrogeochemical monitoring the industrial area of the JSC Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant as well as experimental data concerning the demercurization of soils and building materials those were contaminated with mercury. A comprehensive approach to the demercurization and geological conservation of mercury-containing waste is proposed that includes three stages: 1) a centrifugal extraction of mercury from solid wastes including contaminated grounds, soils and building refuse; 2) chemical immobilizing the mercury remaining in the insoluble form (naturally occurring mineral Stchuettite); 3) geological conservation.
