Sciencetown Episode 25 — Wastewater Solutions

Sciencetown Episode 25 explores novel wastewater treatment approaches and applications in development at KAUST by Professor Pascal Saikaly and researchers in the Water Desalination and Reuse Center.

In this final episode of the three-part Sciencetown series on innovative portable technologies, Julie West chats with Dr. Pascal Saikaly, a professor of environmental science and engineering at KAUST with expertise in wastewater treatment and water reuse. Pascal discusses innovative wastewater treatment approaches being used to produce clean water for non-potable applications such as irrigation and horticulture, including a recently installed portable pilot plant designed to provide reliable access to sanitation for rural and remote areas of Saudi Arabia at significantly reduced energy and operational costs.
