Brine Concentration Technology Market - Snapshot

Brine concentration technology entails treatment of brine to remove harmful salts from the water. Brine is considered a high-concentration solution of salt. It is usually sodium chloride mixed in water. Various processes are employed to produce brines. Brine is a salt water solution. It may contain different salts such as calcium sulfate, silica, calcium chloride, and sodium. Brine needs to be treated before discharging it into the environment. Brine concentration technology is likely to vary according to the end-use industry and quality of the produced brine.

Rise in industrialization has propelled the demand for brine concentration technology

Increase in concern about the environment has compelled governing bodies to regulate wastewater discharge from industries. Many projects that utilize significant amount of water and discharge it directly into the environment have been suspended, as a result of public protest and considerable public awareness. Rise in concern about the environment is anticipated to compel industries to adopt brine concentration technology systems as a necessary solution in order to gain public acceptance. Increase in industrialization and growth in demand for energy in most regions across the globe are estimated to boost the brine concentration technology market in the near future. Governing bodies impose fines and take stringent action against industries upon violation of the act for clean environment. Industries are mandated to follow these regulations and discharge wastewater after removal of harmful salt from the brine. Governing bodies such as the U.S. Environment Protection Agency impose fines for wrongful disposal of industrial wastewater. Wastewater is allowed to be discharge only after the pretreatment and that too the governing bodies need to be informed about it. High installation cost of brine concentration technology can be a restraining factor, specifically for the small industries that have lower capital investment

Oil & gas industry to remain dominant user of brine concentration technology

Oil & gas exploration and production is a major source of energy and revenue for many countries. Its production has been described as one of the most important industrial activities. Significant increase in oil & gas activities has boosted the brine concentration technology market. Increase in water treatment in exploration and production activities is driving the demand for brine concentration technology. Oilfields are responsible for more amount of daily produced water generated worldwide. The rate of oilfield produced water production is projected to rise as the oilfield ages. In terms of technology, the Vertical Tube Falling Film (VTFF) segment is estimated to lead the brine concentration technology market in the near future. Thermal zero liquid discharge (ZLD) is configured with the help of VTFF. It offers advantages such as low consumption of power.

Development & innovation in terms of product and technology

In January 2018, Modern Water Plc. established into a joint venture with Northumbrian Water for the new Gibraltar wastewater treatment plant. It covers design and survey work required for final planning and environmental approvals as well as preliminary site works. Upon completion, Northumbrian Water is expected to be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the plant for 20 years. In March 2016, Modern Water Plc. signed a joint commercialization agreement with Advent Envirocare Technology Pvt. Ltd. regarding brine concentration technology for wastewater treatment in India. Furthermore, the company tested the all-membrane brine concentration technology that resulted in receiving one contract to the company for the textile dyes industry.
