Welcome to Silvo India

Start highly profitable business of extracting pure Silver from easily available waste solution (known as fixer) of X-ray Clinics, Photo labs, Off-set processors, Block makers, Industrial X-ray department etc. using fully automatic machine, based on today's latest technology.

Project Report
To extract pure silver from used and waste fixer solution of X-ray clinics, Photolabs, Block makers, offset processors etc.
Base & Presumptions
While preparing this project report, it has been assumed that about 430 liters of waste fixer solution will be available from different sources, such as X-ray clinics, photolabs, offset processors etc. Generally one litre of fixer solution contains upto 10 grams silver. On safer side, its silver concentration has been assumed to be 8 grams/litre. Silver extraction plant model SX-150 has been selected as the most appropriate model for handling 188 liters of waste fixer solution. The overall silver production should be 18 Kg. per annum. The working  days have been assumed to be 20 days in a month. Because plant can work continuously without the presence of operator / supervisor, therefore plant working has been calculated for 12 hours a day. Since the finished product silver is readily sellable in cash, it has been assumed that there will be sufficient raw material for 3 days to ensure the smooth running of this project.

188 litre fixer solution is required as basic raw material. Generally fixer solution contents
upto 10 grams per litre.On safer side, its average silver concentration has been assumed to
be 8 grams per litre. Because it is used and waste material and it remains available less than
Rs. 150-00 per litre, therefore its maximum rate has been taken to be Rs. 90-00 per litre (150 x 150)
Collection & Transportation charges    
Because 188 litre  waste fixer solution can be precurred easily from nearby sources, therefore
collection charges hasbeen taken at the standard rate of Rs.20-00 per litre. (188 x 20)
Grand Total   31,960-00
Utilities Required (per Month)    
Being 100 watt electricity load of plant, it will consume only2.4 x 20= 48
units per month .The electricity charges @ Rs. 5 per unit (48 x 5)
Total   240-00
Manpower required (per Month)    
The silver extraction plant is automatic and single switch operated machine. The time
involved in this business is only in the procurement of waste solutions, which can be
done easily by the entrepreneur himself. Therefore no labour is required.

While preparing this project report, it has been assumed that the entrepreneur is hard working and can do the necessary field work for collecting the fixer solution from various sources. The plant can be operated for complete 30 days in a month, taking 24 working hours per day, but it depends upon the efficiency of  the entrepreneursand the availability of raw material. This project report is made for standard working of a normal person at an average place. This is a labour intensive industry. It requires continuous hard workand aptitude for regular field work, so that the availability of fixer solution could be maintained regularly. Profitability of this project depends entirely upon the purchase price of waste fixer solution, concentration of silver in it and the sale price of silver.
