Project title: Mercury Safety Deposit. Acronim: MERSADE.

The MERSADE project aims at the design and construction of a safe storage installation prototype for mercury metal based on the experience in handling, storage and technical characteristics of the current installations of the Las Cuevas mercury warehouse, in Almadén (Ciudad Real – Spain).

The scenario drew by the adoption of the European Mercury Strategy and the future resolution on it by the European Parlament, will set as necessary to have approppriatted installations to store the quantities of mercury metal into the European Union territories after the export ban to third countries be in force. Based on the expertise on handling and storage of mercury of Minas de Almaden S.A., and by the characterisation of the current and in use installations, this project aims at the design and construction of a safe storage installation prototype for the European mercury metal.

MERSADE has been approved for the European Commision in November, 2006.
