KAUST has developed a new wastewater treatment method that uses less energy than comparable treatments and renders water safe for agricultural use.
This technology is currently being piloted with industry partner MODON (Saudi Authority for Industrial Cities and Technology Zones).
Produces nutrient-rich water that can be used to irrigate landscape greenery and for urban farming.
Uses a patented anaerobic membrane bioreactor (AnMBR) technology that’s energy-neutral, decentralized, and produces at least 10x lower sludge volumes.

KAUST supports the
KAUST'S CIRCULAR CARBON INITIATIVE (CCI)
The KAUST’s Circular Carbon Initiative supports the G20 Circular Carbon Economy Program, and is composed of five research thrusts:
CO2 Capture: Direct air (DAC) and point source capture technologies.
Nature-Based Solutions: Key nature-based solutions, with an emphasis on Saudi ecosystems.
Geo-Solutions: Explore and quantify geological storage and geothermal energy potential for CCE.
E-Fuels: The manufacture and application of synthetic fuels.
Cross-Cutting: Integration of renewable energy sources.
