About polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) use stabilizer
Stabilizer which PCB is used in is just used, and old stabilizer may just remain in building for business built before March, 1977 in building if we change.
Use of PCB stabilizer that 40 years or more pass from production deteriorates and explodes, and accident that PCB leaks occurs in the whole country. There is not stabilizer which PCB is used in in the whole country, or Surveys is carried out since PCB special measures law is established in 2001, but accident that PCB leaked from facility where there were PCB not applicable and report in Surveys is reported.
※About outbreak of explosion accident of PCB-containing fluorescent lamp stabilizer
Because PCB was generic name of polychlorinated biphenyl compound and was oily material which had "noninflammability" that "it is hard to pyrolyze" property "that the electric insulation characteristics were high" in, it was used as insulating oil such as stabilizers of transformer, condenser and lighting equipment installed in room (kyubikuru) which received high pressure for business use. That carcinogenicity, dermatopathy, the internal organs disorder, hormone are abnormal in PCB; was toxic, and it was for social problem by Kanemi Rice-Oil yusho case that occurred in 1968, and production of PCB was called off in 1972.
About disposal of use of PCB stabilizers in time limit
As for the use of PCB stabilizer, processing is performed under the understanding of location areas middle storage in the PCB processing office of two whole country (Kitakyushu-shi, Fukuoka, Muroran-shi, Hokkaido) of environmental safe business (JESCO). It is prescribed in laws and ordinances that we dispose of use of PCB stabilizer exhausted from Saga in JESCO Kitakyusyu office, and it is until March 31, 2021 during disposal period.
When it is past disposal period, it is decided that disposal facility of JESCO is dismantled and cannot dispose of use of PCB stabilizer. We ask you to confirm person owning building for business before March, 1977 in building whether there is not PCB stabilizer. When use of PCB stabilizer is discovered, we have you push forward Notifecations to the prefecture, disposal procedure in JESCO immediately and would appreciate your doing processing in time limit.
About distinction method of use of PCB stabilizer
About fluorescent lamp appliance (office, lesson use) made by from January, 1957 to August, 1972, mercury lamp appliance (for road for high ceiling), low-pressure sodium lamp appliance (for tunnel), use of PCB stabilizer may be used.
PCB is not included in incandescent electric lamp and halogen bulb which are incandescence light emission, LED lamp and EL lamp which are electroluminescence and fluorescent lamp appliance for ordinary household.
Distinction flow whether or not PCB is included in stabilizer
When we just use lighting equipment at the time of construction in building for business built before March, 1977, it is necessary to distinguish whether PCB is included in stabilizer of lighting equipment in reference to figure of flow below.
Method to distinguish from label (the appearance) of lighting equipment
We may distinguish whether PCB is used from label (the appearance) of lighting equipment.
(1) The production year
If it is made after 1973 (Showa 48)
It is PCB nonuse.
(2) Power factor
Fluorescent lamp appliance of low power factor type is PCB nonuse.
(3) Hf lamp
Fluorescent lamp appliance of use of Hf lamp is PCB nonuse.
When we distinguish from tablet of stabilizer
Is use of PCB lighting equipment from label (the appearance) of lighting equipment; when cannot distinguish, take off fluorescent tube, light reflector, and it is necessary to distinguish presence of PCB on seeing nameplate put on stabilizer.
In the case of magnetism-type stabilizer, PCB may be included in fluorescent lamp appliance. PCB is not included in inverter (electron)-type stabilizer.
In addition, PCB is not used in fluorescent lamp appliance for ordinary household. Please confirm type, power factor than tablet of stabilizer in manufacturer, the production year.
Based on that, you confirm in lighting industry society HP (http://www.jlma.or.jp/kankyo/pcb/index.htm (external link)) in Japan, or please refer to maker window.
Method to calculate power factor, and to judge
If tablet of stabilizer can make out, manufacturer of stabilizer disappears and may not distinguish whether it is use of PCB stabilizer. In that case, please calculate power factor by applying values such as the "input voltage" "electric current voltage" "input electric current" "the first electric current" "power consumption" "loss electricity" to reading, the following calculating formula from tablet. As we correspond to high power factor if calculation results are 0.85 (85%) or more, use of PCB stabilizer is possible. PCB is nonuse if less than 0.85 (85%).
If tablet cannot read, power factor calculation may be possible if it is stabilizer currently using by measuring electric current, the voltage. When you measure, please talk with electrician proprietor.
※When we cannot read the production year by deterioration of in building for business before March, 1977 and tablet and cannot distinguish by the method mentioned above whether it is use of PCB stabilizer, we consider to be use of PCB stabilizer, and it is necessary to dispose in JESCO Kitakyusyu office.
About disposal method of use of PCB stabilizer
When we discover use of PCB stabilizer, it is necessary to dispose in environmental safe business (JESCO) Kitakyusyu office middle storage by the end of March, 2021. At first, you contact sales representative of JESCO Kitakyusyu office, and please push forward procedure for processing. In addition, it is necessary to do Notifecations based on PCB special measures law in Recycling Society Promotion Division of the prefecture.

About supporting systems about Surveys expense of use of PCB stabilizer and disposal
Assistance to Surveys expense of use of PCB lighting equipment and expense required for exchange to LED light
There is assistance system of Surveys expense of use of PCB lighting equipment and expense required for exchange to LED light from association of greenhouse gas examination. When there is guidance of offer as open call for participants implementation period is set, we are going to tell even about Saga homepage. For more information about application method, please see homepage of association of greenhouse gas examination.

As for the small and medium sized enterprise operators, it is reduction system
When small and medium sized enterprise operators dispose of PCB waste in JESCO, there is system that 70% of disposal expenses in JESCO are reduced.
(95% are reduced about individual, bankrupt except sole proprietor)
※Expense required for collection transportation is necessary separately.
For details, please confirm to the person in charge of JESCO.
