Silver Recovery from Scrap and Low-Grade Residue

Posted by Sara Wollschlaeger on Dec 19, 2017 10:19:40 AM
Due to the increase in electric and electronic equipment (EEEs), high-purity silver continues to be in high demand. For the past 4 years, silver demand has exceeded silver mining production, but the global supply has nearly met the demand each and every year – thanks to silver recovery and silver refining. Silver recycling will also be critical to meet future demand, especially as we see the general demand of metals increase across the globe, in relation with technological growth. High-purity silver can be produced from silver refining and silver recycling by utilizing a series methods and processes, such as silver electrowinning and electrorefining. I’d like to delve into how these processes are carried out, and the outlook for silver production.

I recently learned that metal powders have the potential to be the future of renewable energy sources. This is a relatively new venture, and an area of interest for us, here at emew , since producing metal powders is something we do daily. I wanted to explore the topic of the production of metal powders and explain more about how they are produced to create this renewable fuel source.
