New EPA Report: Dental Amalgam Fillings Are Largest User of USA’s Elemental Mercury


On March 30, 2020, EPA published the first in a series of triennial reports on the supply, use, and trade of mercury in the United States, supported by Agency’s mercury inventory reporting rule and as required by amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Based on the information collected under the mercury inventory reporting rule, the 2020 Mercury Inventory Report identifies any manufacturing processes or products that intentionally add mercury and recommends actions to achieve further reductions in mercury use.

The data collected shows that dental amalgam accounts for 46.8% of the total elemental mercury used to make products in the USA.
