WABAG Wins Prestigious ‘Industrial Project of the Year’ Award at 2024 Global Water Awards

Recognition for NMDC ZLD Plant in Chhattisgarh, Setting a New Benchmark in Water Management for the Indian Steel Industry

We’re delighted to share that WABAG honored with the prestigious ‘Industrial Project of the Year’ under Distinction Category at the Global Water Awards 2024 by Global Water Intelligence (GWI). This recognition is attributed to our NMDC ZLD Plant situated in Chhattisgarh, India.

This Centralized Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) facility is designed to treat wastewater originating from fifteen distinct sources, including five streams characterized by high levels of total dissolved solids. The treatment process effectively addresses a complex mixture of contaminants such as cyanides, organic pollutants, and oil and grease, employing a versatile membrane and Multi-Effect Evaporation (MEE) treatment train. Remarkably, the plant achieves a 90% recovery rate, facilitating the reuse of treated water as makeup cooling water for the utility processes within the steel plant. Additionally, multi-effect evaporation is utilized to crystallize salt, further enhancing the efficiency of the facility.

Notably, being one of the largest centralized ZLD plant in the Indian steel industry, the project sets a significant precedent for reducing the sector’s reliance on freshwater sources. This award is a testament to our dedication to technological innovation and operational excellence.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all our customers, business associates, and well-wishers for their unwavering support and trust.

Sustainable solutions. For a better life.
