Growing Popularity of Zero Liquid Discharge is Fueling the Europe Cooling Water Treatment Chemical Market
The power, oil & gas, chemicals, petrochemicals, and mining industries produce enormous volumes of wastewater.Generally, these wastewaters are released through a plant outfall into a surface water body, a dissipation lake, or a deep well injected.
Environmental concerns due to such releases have catalyzed advancements in zero liquid discharge (ZLD) processes.ZLD is a treatment process in which all wastewater is purged and reused, thereby leaving zero release toward the end of the treatment cycle.
This wastewater treatment technique incorporates ultrafiltration, switch assimilation, vanishing/crystallization, and fragmentary electrode ionization.It focuses on the economic reduction of wastewater volumes, along with producing clean water that is suitable for reuse.
ZLD systems generally comprise brackish water concentrators and crystallizers that use thermal evaporation to transform the saline solution into highly refined water. Apart from evaporator/crystallizer systems, ZLD systems may be enabled by promising advancements such as electrodialysis/electrodialysis reversal (ED/EDR), forward osmosis (FO), and membrane distillation (MD). These components are utilized in various combinations to bring down the expense and raise the productivity of the ZLD framework. In addition to the abovementioned techniques, other procedures associated with ZLD include softening, reverse osmosis, drying, and clarification. These procedures require different water treatment chemicals to enhance the productivity of the entire process. The growing concerns among populations about the effects of environmental releases of industrial waste, and stringent guidelines by administrations on water protection and wastewater management have added to the popularity of zero liquid discharge among different businesses, eventually boosting the cooling water treatment chemicals market growth.
Europe Cooling Water Treatment Chemical Market Overview
The cooling water treatment chemicals market in Europe is segmented into Germany, France, Italy, the UK, and the Rest of Europe.The Rest of Europe mainly includes Switzerland, Russia, Sweden, Denmark, and the Netherlands, among others.
The rising use of cooling water treatment chemicals such as corrosion inhibitors, scale inhibitors, and biocides owing to the increased awareness about water pollution and the subsequent need for water recycling to reduce the dependence on the shrinking sources of fresh water is expected to drive the cooling water treatment chemicals market growth during the forecast period.Europe is one of the prominent consumers of cooling water treatment chemicals owing to the prominent activity of industries such as power, steel, mining and metallurgy, petrochemicals, oil & gas, food & beverages, and textile, which require huge quantities of water.
A few of the most commonly used cooling water treatment chemicals in Europe are corrosion inhibitors, scale inhibitors, and biocides. Regulations developed by the European Industrial Emission Directive (IED) regulate the emission of pollutants from the industrial sector, thereby playing a crucial role in the progress of the cooling water treatment chemicals market.
