Petrochemical Wastewater Treatment

The power and petrochemical industries are the greatest consumers of water worldwide, making industrial water and wastewater treatment a significant challenge for development and growth.

The water is consumed by a cooling tower and process usage, where cooling tower blowdown and wastewater are generated. Evolving regulations and freshwater scarcity are pushing the industry to high water recovery and Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) solutions.
