Short summary
China’s atmospheric Hg emissions of anthropogenic origin have been effectively restrained through the national policy of air pollution control. Expansion of technologies with high energy efficiencies and air pollutant removal rates leads to a much slower growth of Hg emissions than that of energy and economy. However, increased uncertainties of Hg emissions are quantified from 2005 to 2012, attributed to the unclear operation status or small sample size of field tests on those technologies.
