Does anyone know anything about a polymer called Chemgon?
Dentists are using it as an alternative to silver recovery. The used
fixer is poured into a 5 gallon container which has a polymer that
neutralizes and bonds to the silver, making the the solid
supposedly non-hazardous. The solid is disposed as regular trash.
Do other states allow this? It sounded like treatment and since
many dentists could be Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity
Generators, our state does not allow CESQGs to treat their waste.
Anyway input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
