Photographic processes have always been significant users of silver. Our huge smelting and film washing capacity means that we can work with the very largest producers, right down to the smallest mini-labs.
Due to the other chemicals involved in photographic processes, companies processing these wastes require the appropriate licences. Our environmental division is registered with the Environment Agency and holds a broad range of licences as well as the appropriate ISO standards. Due to our hazardous waste licences, we are able to handle special and controlled wastes, even if they do not contain precious metals:
- Traditional X-Ray, Litho, Dry-view and other film types
- Fixer & Bleach Fixer
- Silver Traps
