GE is taking over waste-water treatment processes for a Chinese coal-to-chemical plant in light of new regulations. The goal of this project is to eliminate any liquid discharge and allow the plant to reuse all water for production.
Under China’s new regulations, including the Water Pollution Action Plan, the New Environmental Protection Law and China’s 13th Five-Year Plan, these plants must eliminate the liquid discharge of waste-water into the environment, and a ZLD system must be installed to obtain a permit for these plants.
The advanced Zero Liquid Discharge technology from GE combines a vapor recompression brine concentrator and a crystallizer for cost-effective environmental protection.
