Gradiant Corporation has secured four Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) projects in India via its Gradiant India Pvt Ltd division.

According to Business Wire, Gradiant will provide end-to-end water recycling solutions for these clients in the textile processing, dyestuff and alkali-chemical manufacturing, and pharmaceutical industries through its proprietary suite of technologies. These projects are anticipated to recycle from 100 to 4000 kiloliters per day of highly contaminated effluent.

Industrial wastewater is a significant source of the pollution, with industries generating 13,468 mld of wastewater of which only 60% is treated.

Industries in the Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSME) sectors, as well as larger companies, are not treating their wastewater effluent properly because of technology and budget constraints, along with a lack of knowledge about advanced sustainable solutions.

According to Business Wire, the effects of untreated water are long lasting and harm humans, animals, as well as the soil and oceans. It is estimated that as soon as 2020, India will be a water-stressed country and up to 21 Indian cities will run out of groundwater.

“With tightening regulations on businesses that produce water discharge from industrial effluents and a looming water crisis coupled with increasing water demand within India, there is mounting pressure on our current and future clients to find viable ways to combat the growing costs incurred by these challenges. Pharmaceutical and textile-based customers are beginning to accept our proprietary solutions which they acknowledge will significantly reduce the cost and increase the reliability of treating wastewater,” said Ravichandran Selvaraj, GIPL’s managing director. “We are excited to help solve industrial wastewater problems in India by providing sustainable end-to-end solutions.”

The GIPL team has made headway with a significant list of potential projects in the pipeline and a full team of sales, business development, and project management in place with offices in both Chennai and Ahmedabad.

In 2018, Gradiant established its R&D headquarters in Singapore and unveiled a Chinese subsidiary, Gradiant China, based in Shanghai. According to Business Wire, the company’s North American operations include its largest subsidiary to date, Gradiant Energy Services(GES), with over 100 employees. GES is an oilfield services business focused on treating unconventional oil and gas water for reuse.
