Industrial-water purification supplier Aquatech received an order to provide a wastewater recycle system in a gas-field development project in Turkmenistan. Because the plant is in an area where effluents cannot be discharged and reuse is the only option, zero-liquid discharge was specified in the project.

Based in Sharjah, UAE, Aquatech will supply its high efficiency reverse osmosis technology to achieve 90 percent recovery of the total wastewater, the company says.

The system is designed to operate outdoor equipment in an ambient condition of -18.4°F (-28°C). Aquatech has previously executed projects under similar ambient conditions, notably in China.
