Ion Exchange president Ajay Popat commented, “Our company strives to bring new technologies into India and other geographies served by us to help solve pressing water treatment needs with lower cost of ownership and higher reliability. Forward Osmosis and other osmotic brine concentration technologies by FTS will help us further reduce costs for customers requiring zero liquid discharge (ZLD) for their plant effluent streams. We see it’s applicability in the ZLD schemes for chemical, textile, food & beverages, sugar, power industries, CETPs (centralized effluent treatment plants), etc., to name a few where we have already set up impressive working references for ZLD systems.” FTS is a pioneer in the application of FO to treat difficult industrial, municipal, and agricultural waters and provide fresh water for reuse. The company has provided commercial systems for landfill leachate treatment, pharmaceutical concentration, shale gas produced water treatment, and mining effluent treatment.
FTS president Keith Lampi discussed the company’s expansion into new markets, stating “Since the founding of FTS in 2015 our mission has been to apply our technologies both domestically and internationally – water scarcity and the need for reuse are global challenges. For the India market, we see Ion Exchange as the preferred partner for us, having strong complimentary technologies to our FO and brine concentration, and the two companies share a culture of providing well thought-out and complete solutions to customers.” In the India region the strategy for FTS and Ion Exchange is to improve the operating cost and capital cost of ZLD processes, increasing the number of sites that can employ such water saving treatment methods.
