Abstract : Different biological methods are gaining recognition for the production of silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs), However, none of them have concerned to do recovery, removal and separation as a goal. In this study silver nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) were recovered from fixer effluent solution as waste solution of silver by interacting with Lime juice as a bio-reducing and bio-capping agent. The best conditions for obtaining Ag NPs were determined by UV-Visible, FT-IR spectroscopy, DLS technique, SEM and XRD. Finally, the recovery process was assessed with pure citric and ascorbic acids with the same concentration in the applied Lime juice.
