Important challenges in the global water situation – particularly in Saudi Arabia – resulting from population growth and climate change require novel innovative water technologies in order to ensure an adequate supply of drinking water, and reduce water pollution.
Researchers work on adapting highly advanced nanotechnology to traditional process engineering to offer new opportunities in the technological development for advanced water and waste water processes. Major research topics:
- Nano-sensors for water contamination
- Improved water purification
- Water desalination
- Water decontamination
- Wastewater treatment
