Saudi Arabia’s NWC signs wastewater deal with MEP

wasteplant3Saudi Arabia’s National Water Company (NWC) and Middle East Paper Company (MEP) have signed a US$27mn memorandum to treat 5,000 cubic metres of industrial wastewater per day over a 20-year period

Luay Al-Musallam, CEO of NWC, said, “The signing of such agreements is part of the strategic plans of NWC to preserve the environment by getting rid of industrial wastewater in a safe way.

“The use of treated water is the perfect choice for industrial, commercial and agricultural sector and will help maintain a strategic reserve of groundwater.”

Al- Musallam added that an advantage of treating wastewater was that it could be used in district cooling systems after treatment — a much cheaper alternative to using desalinated water.
