WEFTEC Report: Aquafortus Announces Zero Liquid Discharge System for Industrial Wastewater

Aquafortus introduced a continuous regenerable and nonthermal zero liquid discharge technology in the Innovation Pavilion at WEFTEC in Chicago.

The company’s ABXTM system is a liquid-to-liquid crystallizer that promotes the formation of salt crystals through a proprietary direct-contact crystallization process. The ABXTM system efficiently reduces high-TDS brines to salt and produces only clean water.

The system works by a two-stage solvent exchange process in which an absorbent acts as a transfer medium for water. When wastewater brine contacts the absorbent, salts from the brine instantly crystallize. The regenerant then regenerates the absorbent for continuous reuse. The system can precipitate all salts commonly found in industrial wastewater, including troublesome salts such as lithium chloride.

The company says the system can reduce energy usage by 90% and operational costs by 60%. The technology can be used for wastewater treatment, zero liquid discharge, product concentration, volume reduction and resource recovery. Visit www.aquafortus.com.
