Technological Center of Mercury

The Mercury Technological Center was set up as the national center for drawing together the initiatives for the research and technological development applied to the environmental problems raised by mercury and the health risks it poises. It was born as a place for collaboration with all the working groups, research institutes, universities and institutions, both at domestic and at international level, which are interested on the search of the knowledge and of solutions for the problems raised by this metal.
