Abstract:

The objective of the proposed program "A Novel Electrochemical Process for Removal of Scrap Dental Amalgam from Waste Water" is to develop and commercialize cost effective electrochemical hardware for the treatment of dental waste water. Our process will remove the dental amalgam from the waste water to acceptable mercury limits to meet local mercury compliance requirements, e.g., 50 parts per billion (ppb). Our electrocoagulation process will simultaneously remove undissolved mercury, dissolved mercury, silver, and other heavy metals commonly found in dental waste water. In Phase I we will construct apparatus and demonstrate the electrocoagulation process on simulated dental waste water. Our data will be used to develop an economic model for cost comparison with conventional treatment technologies as well as proposed combined treatment technologies.
