Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation Technologies Program

Efficient Reclamation of Wastewater

Kuwait is a water-stressed country with a high demand for groundwater and potable water. The efficient reclamation of wastewater generated from municipal, oil-related and other industrial activities is necessary in order to enhance the country’s ability to provide sufficient water for agricultural purposes as well as for greenery and landscaping needs. According to the Ministry of Public Works (MPW), only about 65% of its treated wastewater is reused. The WTRT Program develops physical, chemical, and biological system solutions tailored to the particular characteristics of each wastewater stream. The program conducts research to efficiently reclaim and reuse Kuwait’s wastewater to improve water availability and contribute to the welfare of the country.
