ZERO BRINE is re-designing the value and supply chain of water and minerals by taking a circular economy approach to 'close the loop’ and improve the environmental impacts of production. Our work involves initial comprehensive physical, chemical characterization studies which are followed by bench scale treatability studies with technology options tested such as nano filtration, oxidation and ion exchange.
Led by TÜBİTAK, we are developing an innovative brine treatment system for the textile industry with the aim to recover concentrated salt solutions for reuse in textile dyeing process baths.
Recovery of resources from brine generated by process industries
Reusing the minerals and water from the brine in other industries
Reduction of industrial saline wastewater streams
This is helping the textile industry in achieving resource efficiency and improving sustainability.
