How wastewater is treated in DIP, Dubai?
Fady Juez, managing director at Metito, showcases the firm’s technology to recycle wastewater from Dubai’s DIP community to a level where it can be used for irrigation purposes and, if required, as makeup water for cooling towers
The amount of water purified by Metito from only one day of consumption in DIP would be sufficient to irrigate around 150,000m2 of dry land.
The amount of wastewater generated by 10,000 people in the Dubai Investment Park (DIP) community in Dubai due to water consumption adds up to around 2 million litres a day. Since water is a scarce commodity in this part of the world, water-management firm Metito implemented a technology to recycle raw waste water to a level where it can be used for both irrigation purposes and makeup water for cooling towers. The amount of water which is purified by the firm from only one day of consumption in DIP would be sufficient to irrigate around 150,000m2 of dry land. The total area benefitting from the treated wastewater is around 2300 ha.
In an exclusive interview with MEP Middle East , Fady Juez, managing director at Metito, said the firm, when it started, was the first and the foremost water treatment company in the whole of the Middle East. He said: “When Metito started building water treatment plants and looking at the environment, people did not even know the meaning of water treatment back in the late 50s. I’m proud to say that we are the pillars of water recycling and desalination.”
