ZLD Technologies for Industrial Wastewater Treatment & Reuse

ZLD Technologies for Industrial Wastewater Treatment & Reuse

The rapid growth of Industrialization has degraded the quality of water resources available in nature, especially freshwater resources. Freshwater scarcity around the globe has posed a major threat to economic growth, water security and ecosystem health. Numerous industrial processes have threatened the availability and value of freshwater resources.

Most of the polluting industries like Tanneries, Paper-pulp, Pharma, Dyeing, Chemicals, etc. generate wastewater with high TDS, salinity, and pH. Therefore, environmental authorities all over the world have introduced ZLD systems to industrial processes. Many governments have also created regulations that require Zero Liquid Discharge compliance, in an attempt to push high-polluting industries towards ZLD.

To create further awareness, Water Today is organising a virtual training program on Fundamentals of ZLD Technologies for Industrial Wastewater Treatment and Reuse on 17 Sep’20. An important reason to consider zero liquid discharge is the potential for recovering resources that are present in wastewater. Some organizations target ZLD for their waste because they can sell the solids that are produced or reuse them as a part of their industrial process. Regardless of an organization’s motivations to target zero liquid discharge, achieving it demonstrates good economics, corporate responsibility and environmental stewardship. By operating an in-house ZLD plant, disposal costs can be reduced, more water is re-used, and fewer greenhouse gases are produced by off-site trucking, which minimizes impact on local ecosystems and the climate.

Our Guest Trainer Mr Sajid Hussain has over 28 years in Industrial wastewater engineering. He played a key role in the revival of the Tirupur dyeing cluster, through the development and implementation of the unique ‘brine reuse technology’ for achieving Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) norms for the Textile Dyeing effluents. He has also developed ZLD technology for Pulp & paper and Leather Tanneries.

The training will comprise the following:

  • ZLD- A climate Independent Approach for polluting industries

  • Drivers for ZLD

  • Technological Challenges

  • Treatment components in a typical ZLD system

  • Design Aspects

  • Technology selection

  • Brine Management

  • Benefits, Cost Economics and Carbon Foot Print

  • ZLD Hierarchies and some Case Studies
