Thanks about the composition and information, I'm still not clear about whether this 11 kg
is emissions from the stack or total including stack deposits- a more significant number might
be average mercury levels down wind vs. distance from the stack not that IMO it represents a
real potential health hazard - if it is of real health concern they are interested in - did
they check on benz a pyrene from the burning fat or dioxin.? What is the value of the 11 kg of
mercury and the 11 kg of silver maybe it could be a money making recycling process - but I
suspect it might be simpler to just pull the teeth prior to incineration whether it is looked
at as a health hazard or a recycling process either way it would save a lot of money I'm sure
the cadaver wouldn't voice an objection.. That might make a more logical law but then again who
says laws need to be logical.
