ZELDA consortium has been successfully shaped and consists of WssTP, Abengoa Water, CTM and Fujifilm. Most current brine management strategies discharge brines into the environment and constitute one of the most important environmental impacts of desalination technologies, especially in those regions with high vulnerability to salinity gradients.
The Life+ ZELDA project (LIFE12 ENV/ES/000901), aims to demonstrate and disseminate the technical feasibility and economical sustainability of decreasing the overall environmental impact of desalination systems. It adopts brine management strategies based on the use of electrodialysis metathesis and valuable compound recovery processes with the final aim of reaching a zero liquid discharge process.
