Wastewater Treatment and Reuse
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.
