Silver Recovery (X-ray Film)

One of the major attractions that our Precious Metals Recovery system has, is the silver recovery efficiency is 98% via a 'Closed Loop' chemical process. The process has no waste and leaves a residual product of very high-quality PET plastic. This product is suitable for onward commodity sale to realise further revenues. The Smart Creative Technologies Precious Metals Recovery process is a very safe, low energy and low carbon impact technology! Our Precious Metals Recovery system has gone through vigorous testing at every stage during its development :
