Information @ a Glance

  • The 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.

  • Catalyst 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.

  • Scrap that 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.

  • Companies that manufacture semifinished and final products that contain silver and other precious metals reprocess virtually all scrap generated for precious-metals recovery.

  • Silver 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.

  • Silver refineries provide an economical and environmentally friendly precious metal recovery service.

  • The most notable producers are Mexico, Peru, the United States, Canada and Australia. Mexico, the largest producer of Silver from mines.

  • The other 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.

  • The supply 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.
