The electroplating industry has been playing a momentous role in the development of industries in Asia. Various methods for the electroplating wastes treatment are well established and documented. Cleaner production should be practised in the electroplating workshops also. Waste reduction not only ease the disposal problem, lower the treatment cost, but also decreases the water consumption. Waste minimization can be achieved by good housekeeping practices and reduction of rinse water. The rinsing steps consume up to 90% of water used by a typical electroplating workshop. The largest waste reduction can be achieved by the modification of rinsing techniques. Several recovery systems can be used in recycling and reuse of used rinsing water and treated affluent, and have been proven tobeeconomicallyfeasible.
