Zero Liquid Discharge is a Water Treatment Process in which all waste water is purified and recycled, therefore, leaving Zero Discharge at the end of the treatment cycle.
The drivers for zero liquid discharge include a growing concern by the public about the impact of such discharges on the environment, and in many areas of the world, water is a scarce resource. Such concern is resulting in increased regulation and limitation of waste water discharges. Even without regulatory push, many companies in various industries are mandating initiatives for reducing water discharge by recycle reuse, as well as ZLD, to reduce their environmental footprint and improve sustainability.
Zero liquid discharge can be achieved in various ways. There is no “one size fits all” solution, as the optimal system design is site specific. The waste water composition, various streams to be treated, site specific operating costs, foot print availability and other factors are determining factors for an optimal design.
