Industrial Wastewater Management in Egypt

Since Egypt’s freshwater levels have never been so scarce, tackling industrial wastewater management is absolutely critical. In Egypt the water share per capita has dropped by a whopping 60% in the last 40 years, and averages 663 m3 per person today.

Although this sharp decrease in water availability can be mostly blamed on skyrocketing demographics in the face of a constant Nile water allocation of 55.5 billion m3 per year, water pollution and industrial wastewater pollution specifically have significantly reduced the amount of water available for irrigation and human consumption. Second only to the sector of agriculture, which is responsible for 80% of freshwater abstraction for irrigation, the industry resorts to Nile surface water for 54% of its freshwater needs, and uses desalination (27%) and groundwater (19%) as well.

On September 25, the German Science Center (DWZ), in partnership with the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater (HCWW), called for an expert workshop on ‘Industrial Wastewater Management in Egypt’ to give a clear outlook on current challenges in this sector and highlight the latest innovations. Best practice models and cutting edge research that Egyptian and German scientists engage in were presented, and their merits discussed during this one-day workshop.
