Global regulation changes demand reduction of the emissions from power plants.
Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) is a set of technologies used to remove sulfur dioxide (SO2) from exhaust flue gases of fossil-fuel power plants, as well as from the emissions of other sulfur oxide emitting processes. When using a wet FGD scrubbing process, wastewater is generated, which must be treated before disposal
FGD wastewater contains high concentrations of sulfates, calcium, magnesium, heavy metals, TSS and ammonia.
Stricter regulations in Europe, China, USA and other countries require Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) treatment for the wastewater.

Utilizing Available Coldness from Liquefied Natural Gas LNG Regasification Process for Seawater Desalination
In this article a case study was considered, in which an LNG regasification plant can supply 1750 ton/hr of water-glycol solution at -15°C to be utilized for seawater desalination. The main challenge in this evaluation is being able to provide a desalination solution able to compete with the commonly used RO plants.
