Oversupplier – (n.) Someone Else Making a Buck

BY: smahan

When Oceana published Cleaning Up, which focused on the economics of chlorine factories switching to mercury-free technology, a few mercury belching companies remarked that the market wasn’t favorable for switching or increasing capacity. In fact, the market is “oversupplied.”

Granted, we’re not in the business of making chlorine, but if the market is so tight, why is Harris & Ford building a ERCO Worldwide, and Pioneer switching to mercury-free technology and increasing their capacity?

It seems mercury isn’t only toxic to people, but to business plans as well…
