Project Reviews

Industrial water treatment projects are unique, and many have more than one solution. Selecting the correct pathway starts with a sound process engineering study, considering technologies, economics, and energy and mass balances. Through this work, one can better assess the pathway(s), preventing later regret or re-work.

 

We can help you to complete an options assessment matrix, providing quantitative analysis and incorporating your needs and ideas. With sound information in-hand, you can make the right decision on next-steps.

 

Leverage our knowledge. Get an options assessment that addresses concerns such as:

  • your treatment goals
  • risks, reliability, and performance measurement
  • total cost of ownership, balancing capital and operating costs, including energy and chemical usage
  • management of residual wastes or brines

Bring Us Your Water Challenges

We’re busy and so are you. We know your time is important, and that water treatment needs may be urgent. Our experts strive for a rapid turnaround on your initial assessment. Two weeks spent upfront can save wasted time and money, and help to better inform your management. 

 

Saltworks experts work collaboratively, ensuring that your feedback and needs are incorporated. We will be honest about whether we can add value. When a well-known solution is clear, we get you on the right path with qualified vendors and heads-up on potential risks. For more complex problems we may present both conventional and innovative solutions in the alternatives mix.

How to Manage Brine Disposal & Treatment

The many options for managing brine, a term for saline wastewater from industrial processes, fall under two categories: brine treatment and brine disposal. Brine treatment involves desalinating the brine for reuse and producing a concentrated brine (lower liquid waste volume), or residual solids (zero liquid discharge).

RO Brine Treatment: Why Maximizing Reverse Osmosis Recovery Matters

Treating RO brine should be approached from two directions. First, maximize the recovery of lower cost membrane systems to minimize the volume for later steps. Second, weigh brine disposal options against thermal treatment technology to determine whether you need to concentrate your brine or treat it down to solids.
