||This document represents part of a report by a Swedish commission set up to analyse the possibilities for increased usage of economic instruments of control in environmental policy. Contents: 1. Nickel-cadmium batteries (environmental problems; production and use of cadmium and current measures against its spread; types of NiCd batteries and their application; collection of discarded batteries; alternative to the NiCd battery). 2. Cadmium in phosphorus fertilisers (general observations on cadmium input into Swedish arable land and the production of phosphorus fertilisers; alternative instruments of control and their evaluation). The Commission's proposals, including the introduction of an environmental charge, are summarised.
