Commercial photoprocessors generate a variety of waste streams during color and black and white film development and print making that present opportunities for waste reduction. The guide describes the typical processes found in photoprocessing operations, specifically those operations based on silver development chemistry, and provides waste reduction options for these operations. Both source reduction and recycling opportunities are identified. Suggestions are provided for regenerating and reusing developer, bleach, and fixative baths, as well as achieving reduction in rinse water flows. Technologies and techniques for recovering silver from both aqueous and solid waste streams are also discussed. To help companies in the industry identify opportunities for waste reduction at their own facilities, the guide includes a set of worksheets which take the user step-by-step through an analysis of the on-site waste generating operations and the possibilities for minimizing each waste. The guide and its worksheets would also be instructive to consultants serving the photoprocessing industry and government agencies who regulate waste streams generated from photoprocessing firms.
