DESIGNED AND SUPPLIED BY AQUATECH, EGYPT’S FIRST INTEGRATED ZLD PLANT WINS DISTINCTION AT 2017 GWI AWARDS

Egypt’s first integrated Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) plant, owned and operated by the Egyptian Ethylene and Derivatives Company (ETHYDCO), has been honored at the 2017 Global Water Awards with a Distinction Award in the Industrial Plant of the Year category, which recognizes projects commissioned in 2016 that represent the most impressive technical and environmental achievements in the field of industrial water.

Designed, supplied, and installed by Aquatech, the Ethydco ZLD project represents an “important and replicable” breakthrough for its region, credited for reducing fresh water demand from the River Nile by 70%.
