IWC 23-45: Wastewater Reuse and By-Product Recovery at the First ZLD in an India Viscose Plant
David Ciszewski, Veolia WTS

Grasim Nagda is the world’s largest producer of spun-dyed specialty fibre. Grasim specified and implemented a large multi-step ZLD wastewater treatment system to maximize water reuse and by-product recovery.
The plant was commissioned and fully operational in 2022. The paper describes the plant design and examines operation and performance. The paper presents data on recovered water quality, salt product purity, and process interface.

IWC 23-16: Mining Wastewater Storage Pond Treatment – 10 Years of Lessons Learned at a Remote Site with Extreme Algae Issues
Linea Miller, E.I.T., WSP E&I Canada

WSP has provided ongoing support to a remote open pit mining operation in the Canadian arctic for treatment of hydrocarbon impacted wastewater which must be discharged seasonally. Effective treatment of the impacted water has proved to be challenging due to the remote nature of the site and increased levels of organics from mining operations. This paper presents the lessons learned and how the treatment approach and system performance have changed over time.
