Making Zero Liquid Discharge an effective reality

Operations & Maintenance Within the environmental and water treatment arenas. Inland Desalination Scheme (B) (K) (J) (I) (A) (C) (D) (F 2 ) (F 1 ) (H) (G) Water collects in an intake well (A) and then is pumped (B) into a pipeline that feeds to pretreatment unit (C) . our systems stand alone or function as unit operations in a larger treatment scheme. A new designed* Electro-dialysis unit (H) is used for further treatment of the concentrate achieving an eight-fold reduction of the RO brine together with a significant increase of product water. These technologies are joined to provide complete ZLD solution. The device uses the driving power of the wind. next generation high recovery systems and Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) technologies. Lesico enjoys proven reputation for providing a complete range of design & build solutions: . operation and maintenance of water and wastewater systems for municipal and industrial applications . . The product water is pumped into holding tanks (G). microfiltration membrane unit and a conventional treatment unit that uses clarification. The RO process produces two streams of water: the "product water" (F1).Long Term Contracts (15-25 years) in wastewater treatment plants Lesico CleanTech Lesico Clean Tech was established in 2006 in order to accelerate the commercialization of innovative. of three: ultra-filtration membrane unit. Evaporation pond (J) is restricted to arid climatic conditions with steady and relatively rapid evaporation rates. and contaminants. Management. solids. and filtration to remove contaminants. * Under Development. Where it would be further treated to ensure good taste and then pumped to homes and businesses.Electro-mechanical projects . These inland installations generate large volumes of rejected waste. These units remove particles suspended in the water: silt. Such a reduction in area leads to an inherently reduced interface with the environment. specifically adapted to inland desalination plants.Railways . deep well injection and land applications.Design&Build. The water produced from the pretreatment units (the "filtrate") is pumped to a holding tank (D) and from there to the Reverse Osmosis (RO) unit (E). Our solutions combine filtration. (E) These methods raise practical environmental concerns and are subject to stringent regulation. WAIV (K) is a novel method for evaporating liquid effluent. Lesico CleanTech cluster of technologies is designed to significantly reduce the acquisition and operation cost of inland discharge installations. have few or no cost-effective discharge methods and are subject to worldwide stringent regulation. front end of sewage treatment plants. which drives away excess humidity from wetted surfaces to intensify the evaporation process by a magnitude of 15-20 times more than evaporation pond with a drastically reduced footprint. and the "concentrate" or "brine" (F2). which is the wastewater from the process. This disposal method is land intensive and is also subject to stringent regulation in recent years. The company boasts strategic alliances with leading local and international groups and carries out work through its various operational divisions and subsidiaries. and depending on the application. membrane separation and evaporation technologies.About Lesico Total Infrastructure Solutions Lesico group is one of the leading companies in Israel's development and construction sector for the past 40 years.Environment . cleaned of impurities and salts. For further treatment of the concentrate there are several means of disposal (I) that are practiced worldwide. The integrated system of ED and WAIV leads to a very high recovery of the plant liquid waste. These include: surface water discharge. including: .
