Unreviewed P2 Options
for the
X-ray Processing Process

Following are a set of P2 options you may wish to implement. No option is perfect for everyone, but sometimes options that have worked at one facility can work at yours. They might also serve as inspiration.

Unreviewed Options for X-ray Processing

Following are a list of options that have been submitted by users of the pollution prevention planner. They have not been reviewed by pollution prevention specialists.

These options are presented so you can see what people in facilities are considering. As with any option (reviewed or unreviewed) you will have to adapt it to your facility.


Installation of a silver recovery system

Silver Recovery System will use steel wool and resin beads to strip the silver from the wastewater, used fiver, used deveoper, and adjust the pH in order for all of these materials to be discharged into the sewer.

Silver Recovery for All Outfalls

Some of the 30 plus Spent Fixer outfalls are already being recovered by UT Southwestern but some are collected and shipped out as wastes. EH&S will collect all spent fixer and move it to a central location for recovery. EH&S has found a vendor that will do the recovery for free using an Electorlytic Unit followed by Ion Exchange. No more spent fixer will be shipped off campus as hazardous waste.
