Recovery of Precious Metals

CSG Nickel Recovery Facility

CSG have developed unique and innovative processes for recovering precious metals from aqueous wastes including Nickel, Copper, Silver and Aluminium.

This award winning process is a UK first for the recovery of Nickel from spent electroless solutions which contain high levels of organics and salts and are notoriously difficult to recover by electrolysis alone. These waste streams are traditionally produced by the nickel plating and aerospace industries.

This process is achieved by a complex method of ion exchange and electrowinning technology and consistently provides high extraction rates of 99.6%.

CSG currently extracts silver for recovery from used photographic fixer and x-ray solutions and has the expertise to cater for many other industrial aqueous wastes requirements including copper and aluminium solutions to name just a few.

Recovery of these metals leads to recycling and reuse, therefore creating a more sustainable solution.

CSG are happy to assist with any enquiry about hazardous or difficult wastes and can be called freephone on 0800 011 66 00 or contact us through our online form.
