Abstract

1. New paradigm in concentrate management: concentrate minimization 2. Concentrate minimization makes several disposal options more amenable 3. Hybrid configuration conceived and evaluated:RO, precipitation, ED/EDR 4. Concentrate volume via hybrid configuration reduced by over 70% 5. Hybrid approach is cost-competitive Likely lifecycle cost advantage compared to conventional RO plus brine concentrator or ZLD.
