About mercurial use product industrial waste, mercury-containing soot and dust

The last update date:


 With a part of cabinet ordinance (2015 cabinet ordinance No. 376) which revised a part of the law enforcement order about disposal of waste and cleaning up being enforced on October 1, 2017, relations departmental orders were maintained, and "use product industrial waste of mercury" and "component soot and dust of mercury" were defined newly. As new correspondence is necessary after October 1, 2017 when we handle industrial waste corresponding to these, please confirm the following link.


Mercurial use product industrial waste

Thing that product of the next division 1 - division 3 became industrial waste is mercurial use product industrial waste.

  • Division 1 raises to list shown below among mercury use products
  • Product (in table except thing pertaining to thing with cross) which includes group of product of division 1 division 2
  • Product that indication about use of mercury or the compound is done division 3


 We become a target of use of division table 1 mercury product industrial waste


 Mercury cell  


 Discharge tube (we include vapor lamp (fluorescent tube and HID lamp and, only for thing which mercury can identify by viewing, remove).



 Air zinc battery 


 Mercurial resistance standard  


 Switch and relay (thing which mercury can identify by viewing)



 Differential pressure-type flowmeter 


 Fluorescent tube (including cold cathode fluorescent lamp and outside electrode fluorescent tube)





 HID lamp (high brightness vapor lamp)



 Mercurial indentation technique measuring equipment 


 Vapor lamp (except fluorescent tube and HID lamp)



 Frequency standard plane




 Gas analyzer (we remove thing which assumes mercury standard material.) 




 The capacity form power meter




 Dripping mercury electrode


 Liquid column form pressure gauge 


 Reference electrode 


 Elastic pressure gauge (diagram Fulham-type thing)

 Mercury-type sphygmomanometer 


 Preparation of iodinated second mercury 


 Fixed temperature point cell 


 The nitric acid first mercurial preparation 





 Preparation of mercuric nitrate 


 Boiler (thing used for two fluid cycles) 


 Thiocyanic acid second mercurial preparation

 Mercurial trim heel adjuster    No. 19 color corresponds to cross only for applied thing 


  ※There is collection duty of mercury about thing having parenthesis in the number.

  ※About No. 11 elastic pressure gauge and No. 12 pressure transmission device, collection duty of mercury applies to everything not only diagram Fulham-type thing.

Product example including group targeted for division 2


 Product example including target groupProduct of division 1 used in the left note product 
 Hearing aid, exposure meter of silversalt camera Mercury cell
 Hearing aid, pager (pager) Air zinc battery

※Because the following has difficult distinction of what is incorporated, we are inapplicable

  • Switch and product which includes group of relay, fluorescent tube, HID lamp, vapor lamp, elastic pressure gauge, pressure transmission device, vacuum gauge, mercurial repletion pressure type thermometer or frequency standard machine
  • Color was applied 

Mercurial use product example targeted for division 3

 When it becomes industrial waste, about mercurial use product shown mercury is used, we correspond to use product industrial waste of mercury.
  • Notation (e.g.,: mercury) with Japanese
  • Chemical symbol (Hg)
  • Notation (Mercury) by English
  • J-Moss mercury-containing indication (as for one chart below)
 Mercury-containing indication

Mercury-containing soot and dust

 Thing that polluted thing became waste to mercury or the compound is mercurial pollutant, but thing corresponding to the next condition with industrial waste which does not correspond to management industrial waste particularly soon is treated as component soot and dust of mercury. In addition, mercury-containing soot and dust including mercury uniformity or more are obliged to carry out collection of mercury at the time of disposal, reproduction.
