Amalgam Separators

EPA and Amalgam Separator Update. 

 

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced last week that it will lift its hold on finalized standards to reduce the discharge of mercury and other metals in wastewater from dental practices into municipal sewage treatment plants. The rule will go into effect on July 14, 2017, with a compliance date for dental offices of July 14, 2020
 
Summary of regulation. 
  • Follow Best Management Practice regarding amalgam waste within the practice (including: collect and recycle scrap amalgam, clean amalgam traps with non-bleach or non-chlorine cleanser so as not to release mercury from the amalgam).
  • If not already in place, install an amalgam separator certified to at least a 95% removal efficiency.
  • Existing dental offices have 3 years to comply (must have in place by July 14, 2020).
  • New dental offices must comply within 30 days of opening.

Dental offices that currently have an amalgam separator installed must have a separator in place that meets the 95% efficiency standard within 10 years.
