Contents Notes
"The electrochemical removal of heavy metals and cyanide from the wastewaters from electroplating shops is one alternative available to plating shops in achieving compliance with effluent regulations. Several of such systems manufactured by HSA Reactors, Ltd., have been installed since 1981 with varying degrees of success. This report is the result of a brief survey of the effectiveness of several of these installations. Six installations of electrochemical recovery systems were tested to establish the performance that may be expected from the technology. Results showed that performance varied widely ranging from nearly ineffective to a metal removal and cyanide destruction capability sufficient to achieve compliance with effluent regulations. The tests conclude that the technology is a viable solution to the pollution control problem under certain circumstances."
