Thermax recently installed a Zero Liquid Discharge plant at the SAB Miller brewery in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The 75m3/ hour reverse osmosis and ZLD systems treat and recycle effluent, thereby conserving fresh water. The successful implementation has helped Thermax bag two more ZLD orders from SAB Miller for their plants in Rajasthan and Haryana.
Zero-liquid discharge systems help manufacturing companies to comply with the stringent pollution control regulations that have come up in the past decade. They treat and recycle wastewater, leaving zero discharge at the end. Reverse osmosis, ultra-filtration systems and other tertiary treatment processes form part of the process. Thermax has implemented ZLD in industries such as textile, automobile, chemical, pharma, refinery and brewery.
Thermax is also executing a ZLD project at Emcure Pharmaceuticals. It will help the Pune based firm enhance capacity, and integrate its effluent and sewage treatment and recycling plants spread across their factory. Thermax will engineer a compact, multi storied plant and recover 99% water. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
