Novel Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) technology sees further commercial traction
In the US, Aquafortus has formed Hyperion Water Technologies in a joint venture with Berkshire Hathaway backed Pilot Corporation. Hyperion has committed USD25 million to deploy Aquafortus’ ZLD technology within the Oil & Gas market.
In Europe, Aquafortus has signed a non-exclusive licensing agreement with Lenntech for industrial wastewater applications in Europe.
The availability of industrial-scale low-energy ZLD technologies is great news for FO commercialization efforts where draw solution recovery constitutes a significant share of FO system CAPEX & OPEX.
