||The electrochemical removal of heavy metals and cyanide from the wastewaters from electroplating shops is one alternative available to plating shops in achieving compliance with effluent regulations. The report is the result of a brief survey of the effectiveness of several of these installations. Six installations of HSA electrochemical recovery system were tested to establish the performance that may be expected from the technology. Results showed a wide variation of performance, ranging from nearly ineffective to a metal removal and cyanide destruction capability sufficient to achieve compliance with effluent regulations. The tests indicate that the technology is a viable solution to the pollution control problem, when properly applied. Further the system permits compliance with effluent regulations while producing a recycleable product rather than a waste subject to regulation under RCRA, Subtitle C.
