The last decade has brought with it the implementation of several full-scale municipal and industrial brine reduction and zero liquid discharge (ZLD) facilities that use combinations of traditional water treatment processes and widely commercialized proprietary systems. This paper discusses several case studies that demonstrate innovative applications of established technologies, including pelletized softening, patented High Efficiency Reverse Osmosis (HERO®), thermal processes to achieve brine reduction, and zero liquid discharge and mineral recovery.
