Modern Water, the owner of leading technologies for water, wastewater treatment and the monitoring of water quality, has signed an agreement with Advent Envirocare Technology for the joint development and commercialisation of Modern Water’s proprietary all membrane brine concentration (AMBC) technology, which will be applied to wastewater treatment plants across India.
The need for brine concentration in certain industries has never been greater, with increased focus on waste minimisation, increased water recycling and requirements for zero liquid discharge (ZLD). The integration of Modern Water’s brine concentration technologies substantially reduces both the capital costs and, in particular, the operating costs necessary.
Simon Humphrey, CEO, Modern Water, said, "We are pleased to partner with Advent Envirocare in the important Indian market and we are confident that together we will be able to bring quantifiable benefits to customers by significantly lowering the cost of waste water treatment in achieving ZLD standards. Furthermore, this will allow for a much more economic and practical way to minimise industrial discharges to the environment. This project will clearly demonstrate the benefits of Modern Water’s approach and will allow us to promote our brine concentration technology throughout the world."
Soham Mehta, Managing Director, Advent Envirocare Technology, commented, "As partners, Advent Envirocare and Modern Water will use cutting-edge technology to benefit our customers and make a real difference to the economics and efficiencies of the ZLD process. With the recent statutory development of implementing ZLD in water-intensive industries at a time when Advent Envirocare is executing some of the largest ZLD projects in India, the stage is set for this partnership to flourish."
