Title:Reduce Image Processing Costs: Minimize Waste And Recover Silver
Author(s):West, Keith; Pferdehirt, Wayne; Jacobson, Debra
Subject(s):Printing industry -- Environmental aspects
Silver -- Recycling
Abstract:This fact sheet describes how printers can take actions that will help them to recover silver while generating less waste during image processing. These wastes typically include film, developer, fixer, and wash water, all of which require proper management and disposal. Film, fixer and to some extent wash water, can contain silver, which is a regulated metal. These can also contain hydroquinone, though hydroquinone is not regulated under RCRA as a hazardous waste. This fact sheet describes how to manage these wastes in an environmentally sound manner, and emphasizes the importance of recovering silver from both a business and environmental perspective.
