A substance flow analysis

Increasing quantities of antimony are being used in Switzerland for an ever broader range of applications. Antimony is mainly used today in the following types of products: (1) metal products such as batteries and ammunition; (2) non-metal products such as catalysers and stabilisers in plastics, glass and brake linings; and (3) brominated and chlorinated flame-proofing agents. The substance flow analysis in this report is primarily based on published data. It describes the products and routes via which antimony was imported into Switzerland, utilised, disposed of and exported, in the course of 2001.
