The concepts of "Sustainability, Global Warming and Zero discharge" are correlated. In any civilized developing and industrialization processes, these three items are to be utilized, studied thoroughly for necessary sustainability of global environment and to reduce pollution effects against increasing population. The global pollution control must be recalculated and to be redesigned according to "Zero discharge". To support fundamentally the basic biological amenities and then their consuming lives, zero discharge and global warming are to be considered seriously. They are inversely proportional and therefore the concept of "Zero" discharge must be used in the model of EAT (Enforced Appropriate Technology). MBST (Membrane based separation technology) and UV (Ultraviolet ray) applications are considered to be most viable, ecofriendly, appropriate and cost-effective technology, at least to control and to measure the standard parameter of pollution ace corresponding to clean water act. Zero discharge is viable in wastewater treatments and must also be applicable to control emission effects. In this paper, some basic concepts of "Zero discharge", applicable specially in wastewater treatments and corresponding to "Global Warming" have been discussed, to highlight and to control the major threat of pollution, slowly destroying the global environment.
