Of the extraction reactors used in recovering this silver, the rotating cylindrical electrode (RCE) has an advantage in that it provides improved mass transfer with an extended effective surface by: 7.

Recovery of Silver from Liquid Photographic Wastes: The extraction process was carried out by mixing an equal volume (25ml) of liquid photographic waste and unripe plantain peel ash solution using a mechanical shaker at a speed of rpm for 6 hours, after which the two phases separated.

The. Photo processing pro- duces several silver- bearing waste streams, ranging from less than 5 milligrams per liter (mg/l) to 12, mg/l of silver. The silver con- centration depends pri- marily upon two fac- tors: (1) the stage from which the wastes origi- nate and (2).

A paragraph 22 exemption allows the recovery of silver from wastes produced in connection with printing or photographic processing. Guidance and application forms can be found below. Wastes produced as a result of printing or photographic processing.

CONCLUSIONS The recovery of silver from X-ray and monochrome photographic films is easily carried out by leaching with solutions of NaCN plus H The process has the following advantages: - It uses common, low-cost reactants (the only disadvantage is the toxicity of the NaCN, which can in part be avoided).Cited by: Althoughthis silver could easily be recovered and recycled, the current regulatory environment makes disposal an easier, less costly option for this small generator The photographic processing industry has four options in silv er recovery i.e., electr olytic pla ting, metallic r eplacement, ion exchange and chemical precipitation7.

Four factors limit. In this study, a chemical processing scheme was adopted to recover silver metal from waste radiographic films. The films were dissolved in 1 M nitric acid (HNO3) solution for 3 hours at 70°C to convert silver into silver nitrate (AgNO3(aq)).

(a) the effluent from the recovery unit should contain less than 5 parts per million (ppm) silver; and (b) the residues from the recovery unit should be landed ashore for disposal or recycling as hazardous waste, or as non-hazardous waste if it.
