Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) as Sustainable Technology — Challenges and Perspectives
In sustainable treatment of wastewater, in addition to treatment performance, other aspects viz. energy utilization, recycling of wastewater and social issues also play vital role in evaluation of
Making Waves: Zero Liquid Discharge for Sustainable Industrial Effluent Management
Zero liquid discharge (ZLD) aims to minimize liquid waste generation whilst extend water supply, and this industrial strategy has attracted renewed interest worldwide in recent years. In spite of the
Brines from industrial water recycling: new ways to resource recovery
Stricter environmental regulation policies and freshwater as an increasingly valuable resource have led to global growth of zero liquid discharge (ZLD) processes in recent years. During this
Zero Liquid Discharge System for the Tannery Industry—An Overview of Sustainable Approaches
The tannery industry is characterized by the consumption of a large quantity of water, around 30–40 m3 for processing 1000 kg of hide or skin. This amount becomes wastewater, containing about 300 kg
Selection of Industrial Trade Waste Resource Recovery Technologies—A Systematic Review
Industrial wastewater and other trade wastes are often sources of pollution which can cause environmental damage. However, resource recovery approaches have the potential to lead to positive


The Global Rise of Zero Liquid Discharge for Wastewater Management: Drivers, Technologies, and Future Directions.
This critical review discusses the drivers, incentives, technologies, and environmental impacts of zero liquid discharge, and highlights the evolution of ZLD from thermal- to membrane-based processes, and analyzes the advantages and limitations of existing and emerging ZLD technologies.
Achieving Zero Liquid Discharge In SAGD Heavy Oil Recovery
Designing a plant for maximum water recycle and reuse (i.e., zero liquid discharge) is not the mystery it once was. Planning to implement zero liquid discharge right from the start wins faster
Water reuse and zero liquid discharge: a sustainable water resource solution
Increased water demand from population and economic growth, environmental needs, change in rainfall, flood contamination of good quality water and over abstraction of groundwater are all factors that
Zeroing in on ZLD Technologies for Inland Desalination
Many communities need affordable inland desalination to meet increasing water demands by making brackish water sources available for use in supplementing existing water supplies or to control the
Resource Recovery from Wastewater by Biological Technologies: Opportunities, Challenges, and Prospects
This review identifies emerging technologies that enable resource recovery across the wastewater treatment cycle and focuses on the generation and re-synthesis of energetic resources and key resources to be recycled as raw materials in a cradle-to-cradle economy concept.
