There are a number of small electroplating firms in North Carolina that electroplate chromium, nickel, copper, zinc and cadmium onto a variety of substrates. A smaller number of these firms electroplate cadmium for specific industrial and military uses. A major problem for these electroplaters is the processing, reuse, pretreatment and/or disposal of spent cadmium plating and rinse baths. This project is a technical and economic study to determine the probable success of cadmium recovery and reuse primarily from contaminated rinse baths.
