ZLD provides huge opportunity in wet processing: Report
08
Jul '16
Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) provides huge opportunity in highly-polluting and water-intensive textile wet processing industry, according to a recent report by India based Sustainability Outlook.
 
Textile wet processing accounts for the largest share in the cumulative potential of $3 billion (Rs 210 billion) for the three main sectors that include distillery (molasses based) and pulp & paper (large wood based).
 
“Though ZLD has a significant impact on the cost of production in the wet processing segment, the impact on final product (garment in this case) is not very substantial,” the report says.
 
However, the actual market penetration of ZLD would primarily be governed by how the policy landscape shapes up in the next few years. In the near term, the potential market would be focused on the Ganga basin states but with the onset of the national mandate, other states are expected to climb the ladder to become the hotspots for market potential in this domain.
 
Although there is a large market opportunity for ZLD solutions, there are a few roadblocks for textile (wet processing) to achieve ZLD like low price of water leading to weak business case, high cost of implementation leading to reduced cost competitiveness in the national and global markets, lack of financing sources, disposal of solid by-product in certain sectors, escalated carbon footprint of the industry, and technology limitations.
 
In the current scenario where water scarcity is plaguing parts of India, the government is providing the required thrust to move industries towards sustainability to reduce their water footprint. So, ZLD is a welcome move for ensuring water security in the country, especially when Indian industries have been operating well below the global best scenarios and have been a major reason for pollution of the country's water resources.
