The scientists are founders of Al-Miyah Solutions, a KAUST spin-off company specializing in decentralized water recycling technologies. The Al-Miyah mobile and "plug and play" modular technology will efficiently treat and convert wastewater into reusable water for areas not connected to the centralized sewer network. The deployment of the first full-scale unit at the NWC Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in Rabigh is the fruit of the team's five-year research effort in the Water Desalination and Reuse Center (WDRC) at KAUST, and partnership with KAUST Innovation and local partner National Water Company (NWC).
