An electrodialysis procedure is developed whereby the discharge of rinsewater is eliminated. The final rinse contains a concentration of cyanide of 1/10,000 of that of the plating. These concentrations are maintained by the use of electrodialysis to transport cyanides continuously from the second rinse solution back to the first rinse solution and also from the first rinse back to the plating bath. In this way, all cyanide is recovered and returned to the bath. Design parameters are determined, and costs are estimated. The experimental system used in this study was a prototype of a commercial size electrodialysis unit operated continuously under conditions which simulated those of the projected two-stage commercial system using a cyanide copper plating bath.
