  • meet the discharge standards of the effluent, and 
  • allow economically and environmentally friendly disposal of solid waste (generally inorganic salts). 


  • Data collection and review, evaluation of existing treatment facilities, 
  • Analysis of baseline data and definition of design criteria, 
  • Elaboration of options consisting of advanced oxidation process, vacuum evaporation process, crystallization of salts, and calcium Sulphate precipitation process,
  • Evaluation of options in terms of technical, economic, environmental aspects for long-term sustainable O&M and for integrated water management system, with the aim to achieve zero discharge,
  • Recommendation for solutions and further project steps.
