Abstract The efforts of this program have included the determination of the worth of recovering metal values from metal-finishers' wastewater treatment sludges, the definition and research of processes for such recovery, and the selection, design, and costing of a recommended process. The study included a survey of the literature to determine the state-of-the-art regarding the generation, disposal, and recovery treatment practices relevant to metal-finishers' sludges, and to identify metal recovery processes possibly applicable to those sludges. This information was supplemented with a survey by questionnaire to determine the current status of relevant practices and conditions. Field investigations provided detailed examples of plant practices, sludge storage conditions, and sludge characteristics. The extraction of metal values from waste sludges by various leaching agents, and the recovery of metal values by techniques including electrowinning, cementation, and liquid-liquid ion exchange were studied. A portable pilot process for the treatment of waste sludges and recovery of metal values was selected and equipment and operating costs developed.
