silverware industry produces liquid and solid scrap. Most of the liquid
waste is produced by the silver plating segment of the industry. Solid
wastes are mostly from the production of sterling ware.
formulations are closely held proprietary technology. Silver-bearing scrap
generated during the early stages of the catalyst production process is
simply returned to the process.
is generated at a later stage of the process, such as end-of-life catalysts
or a substrate that has already been coated with silver, is usually sent to
a toll refiner for the recovery of silver.
that manufacture semifinished and final products that contain silver and
other precious metals reprocess virtually all scrap generated for
scrap is generated primarily in the industrialized countries, which
indicates that demand for silver is skewed toward industrial nations. Also,
silver-bearing scrap is mostly from electronics and photographic sources.
refineries provide an economical and environmentally friendly precious metal
metal scrap such as silver leaf, silver metal foil and antique silver is
weighed and then smelted. As the silver scrap liquefies in the furnace,
borax and soda ash are mixed in to separate the pure silver from other
precious and non-precious metals.
Substantially pure silver is economically and effectively recovered from
scrap material such as scrap material containing silver, silver oxide and
other metals such as cadmium, copper, nickel and the like in elemental or
of Silver is based on two facts, mine production and recycled Silver scraps.
Fifteen countries produce roughly 94 percent of the worlds Silver from
notable producers are Mexico, Peru, the United States, Canada and Australia.
Mexico, the largest producer of Silver from mines.
major source from Silver is from refining, or scrap recycling. Because
Silver is used in the photography industry, as well as by the chemical
industry, the Silver used in solvents and the like can be removed from the
waste and recycled.
of Silver grew only marginally, but the total supply of Silver from scrap
has increased dramatically in the last decade as more advanced methods of
recycling has been developed.
silver scrap is the second largest source of silver, totaling about 20 per
cent of global supply.
