P2 at photofinishing ?

Hi P2TECHers--

I wonder if anyone can point me to approaches for P2 and solution
recycle and reuse for photographic film developing.  In particular I'm
trying to help a facility that does a lot of x-ray inspection of metal
parts and assemblies.  The facility uses automatic developing machines
for x-ray film.  Much, but not all, of the silver in used fixer is
recovered.  Spent developer and fixer go down the drain.  (By the way,
film is recycled off-site.)

The facility realizes that ideally it should go to a digital solid state
imaging system to avoid chemical developing altogether, and to achieve
various productivity gains (I'm looking for leads here as
well--conventional fluorography doesn't give the resolution required).
Short of the ideal, the facility would benefit from developer and fixer
recovery and improved silver recovery.

Any leads would be welcome.
