Researchers have developed a cloth that can absorb mercury from broken florescent bulbs.
I’ve been wondering about the florescent bulb mercury danger issue recently. The old-fashioned long tube florescents contain mercury also don’t they? I have rarely, if ever, heard anyone worrying about the mercury in those. I remember when someone broke a couple of long florescent tubes in the place where I used to work and it was no big deal. They just swept up the glass and that was it.
