Indian steel mill selects GE ZLD water recycling technology

This will be the world’s first steel mill to use ZLD and electrodialysis reversal (EDR) for wastewater recycling.

GE will deliver a ZLD wastewater treatment system, which includes two EDR trains for water reclamation, for POSCO’s new plant. GE also will provide technical services, including operator training, during installation and commissioning of the new facility.

“POSCO is using the EDR technology to gain a higher recovery of treated wastewater and the ZLD system for reliable wastewater treatment, both of which help to address the challenges of high water consumption in the region, as well as water scarcity on a global level,” said Jeff Connelly, vice president, engineered systems - water and process technologies for GE Power & Water.
