Desalting Waste Streams: The Future of Brine Concentration Technologies

December 04, 2020 | Research Report

Global water scarcity is pushing industry to aggressively compete with agriculture and public supply for access to freshwater. As water prices increase at an average 5% to 11% around the world, industries need to focus on recycling and reusing not just water, but finding value in their waste. Zero liquid discharge has been gained traction over the past 5 years as an approach to close-the-loop of wastewater management within the fence, but the process still remains an order of magnitude more expensive than traditional water treatment. In this report, we will cover a crop of new solutions for brine concentration, a key aspect of making ZLD cheaper and an avenue to start recovering valuable resources from waste streams (brines).
