Aquatech ZLD Project Shortlisted for 2017 Global Water Award, Industrial Water Project of the Year

Egypt’s first integrated Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) plant, commissioned in 2016 by the Egyptian Ethylene and Derivatives Company (Ethydco), is shortlisted for a 2017 Global Water Award in the Industrial Water Project of the Year category that recognizes the year’s most impressive technical or environmental achievements in the field of industrial water. Designed, supplied and installed by Aquatech International, the Ethydco ZLD project represents an “important and replicable” breakthrough for its region, which depends heavily on the oil economy. It has been hailed as “an outstanding double whammy for the environment by slashing both its abstraction requirements and its environmental discharges.”
