BAAR, Switzerland, March 17, 2014 – Aquarion Group, a global water treatment solutions provider, introduces ZLD-ECO, an advanced hybrid Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) system that further optimizes the ZLD process.
ZLD-ECO utilizes innovative, proprietary pre-treatment processes to reduce thermal treatment, resulting in lower energy and chemical consumption and reduced capital cost. ZLD-ECO lowers energy consumption by capturing and reusing the waste energy and recycling it for application in other process steps. This energy return optimizes flux rates with respect to membrane technologies.
ZLD-ECO provides high recovery rates of 90-99 percent, depending on the source water.
“Aquarion is pleased to introduce ZLD-ECO, which expands the range of zero liquid discharge technologies in our portfolio. The term ‘ECO’ emphasizes the highly economical aspects of this system. We believe that, with its lower CAPEX and OPEX, ZLD-ECO is the lowest cost technology available to achieve zero liquid discharge,” said Karl Michael Millauer, Chief Executive Officer of Aquarion Group.
