  5. An Innovative Photocatalytic Process for Silver Recovery

    SBC: Wangtec Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The photographic industry consumes about 70 million troy ounces of silver annually. The technology used to recover the silver from concentrated solution is more than 40 years old. However, investigators project that, based on industry experience, as much as 20% of this silver is lost in the wash water and goes unrecovered. The toxicity of silver in the effluent is a growing concern in the United ...
