Our planet continues to become increasingly more crowded. Pollution and waste are showing irreversible impact on a global scale, and it has become necessary to come up with solutions in all industries. It is widely known, though perhaps not publicly thought of, that the process of purifying water creates waste. As we remove the minerals and impurities from water, we inherently condense those impurities into a smaller body of water. This waste affects the environment in various adverse ways. The solution lies in a concept known as Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD).
