Zero Liquid Discharge Process
Zero liquid discharge (ZID) is a water treatment process in which all wastewater is purified and recycled; therefore, leaving zero discharge at the end of the treatment cycle.
ZLD is a process that is beneficial to industrial and municipal organizations as well as the environment because it saves money and no efficient, or discharge, is left over, ZLD systems employ the most advanced wastewater treatment technologies to purify and recycle virtually all of the wastewater produced. Also zero liquid discharge technologies help plants meet discharge and water reuse requirements, enabling businesses to:
With all increasing demand on natural water resources and unabated pollution posed by industrial discharges into the environment, it become necessary to implement zero discharge system in industrial waste water treatment plants. In a waste water treatment facility, zero discharge theoretically means no discharge of any kind of pollutants into the environment.
Since the concept of zero discharge system is to ensure essentially no discharge of pollutants into the environment, recovery of water gains primary importance. It achieves two purpose
