Why This Is Necessary
Zero liquid discharge can be defined broadly as a process for maximum recovery of water from a waste water source that would otherwise be discharged. This water is beneficially reused and the salts, and other solids contained in the waste water are produced and generally disposed of in a landfill. The drivers for zero liquid discharge include a growing concern by the public about the impact of such discharges on the environment, and in many areas of the world, water is a scarce resource. One of the driving forces for Adani Wilmar Ltd. is their water scarce location of Gujarat, India. Through ZLD, they will be able to reuse their water, reduce their environmental footprint and improve sustainability within the facility.
