Metal recovery and water recycling
The ENVIRO-CLEAN PROCESS recovers heavy metals such as chromium, copper, zinc, lead, cadmium, mercury, nickel, silver, and manganese from groundwater, process and waste streams.
The ENVIRO-CLEAN PROCESS recovers heavy metals such as chromium, copper, zinc,lead, cadmium, mercury, nickel, silver, and manganese from groundwater, process and waste streams. This two-step process, combines proprietary treated filter media and electrolytic metal recovery to recycle the effluent and produce a saleable metal product. No waste is generated on-site.
The system can treat single as well as multi-component metal bearing streams from 5 to 1000 gpm. System options include computer control and internet access with PLC. Operations involving electroplating, computer manufacturing, tin mills, galvanizing, photographic film, aerospace, acid mine drainage and ground water remediation all generate flows which the ENVIRO-CLEAN PROCESS can recover metals.

Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
