Treatment of electroplating waste: Electroplating Waste is highly complex in nature as it contains many metallic as well as nonmetallic ions. These ions are having marked effect on human beings and ecosystem. Hence, proper treatment of plating waste is quite a challenge in any electrodepostion labs. Plating effluent of the lab is collected in the collection tanks and analyzed. After lime treatment, it is treated by suitable ion exchangers to get treated waste free from toxic ions as per the guidelines laid down by ASTM and IS. Treated effluent is then analyzed and disposed to the ecosystem.
