Process Conclusion

Once environment engineers have collected the information outlined previously, they can design a successful waste treatment plant. However, they should also consider the possible contamination of resin beds with oil, special organic chemicals, and SS, e.g., sludge. Generalizing from individual plants is difficult since many plating and anodizing systems operate differently.

Environmental engineers must recognize that ion exchange is a concentrating process. The elution and recovery of metals becomes part of other procedures such as electrodialysis, precipitation, and filtration. They must also consider varying local discharge regulations.
