The report, in three parts, describes the characteristics of the Cleveland (OH) area electroplating industry and an approach and design for a centralized facility to treat cyanide and heavy metal wastes generated by this industry. The facility is termed the Resource Recovery Park. Part I examines the technical feasibility of the concept, assessing the wastes of a number of platers in considerable detail and designing the treatment and recovery processes to be applied to those wastes. Part II presents the results of a marketing study intended to determine the incentives for individual plating shops to participate in the system. Part II also details the proposed management and financing plan, projecting an attractive rate of return to investors. Part III describes an investigation of a particular site and the accompanying design and costs.
