English term or phrase: evaporative concentrate
Water and liquid wastes are stored in a system of tanks. Concentrated salt water from reverse osmosis is stored in vertical cylindrical steel tanks with a total capacity of 400 000 m3 (diameter approximately 12 m; height approximately 11 m; capacity 1000 t). Smaller square shape steel tanks (2 m × 2 m × 9 m, capacity 40 t) are used for desalinated water. Furthermore, horizontal steel tanks are available for evaporative concentrate (cylindrical forms, 100 t). This type of storage requires only a relatively small area to accommodate 295 tanks with a total capacity of 30 000 t.
