Date:11/29/1993

Description: Mercury roasting and retorting are two methods of reclamation. Discussion of what roasting and retorting furnaces accomplish. Reclamation is a type of recycling. Recycling is generally not subject to regulation, unless recycling is taking place in a BIF. Roasting and retorting meet the definition of industrial furnace (BIF) since they are smelting, melting, or refining furnaces. Retorting solely for metal recovery is conditionally exempt from BIF rules (SEE ALSO: 64 FR 52827; September 30, 1999). Discussion of the elements of the exemption.
