I do not have knowledge of this technique, but I do have a comment.
Silver recovery units capture silver that can be reused and the effluent
is relatively benign and can be easily managed by waste water treatment
facilities. Capturing silver in a solid and throwing it in the garbage
seems like a "dilution is the solution" approach. Silver
recovery is cheap and can be easily managed by most small
operations...they get credit back for the silver that is recovered and
don't have waste disposal costs. Why choose an option (solidification)
that doesn't have any environmental benefit? We just have to get beyond
these types of "easy" disposal solutions!
