The Potential of Riverbank Filtration in Egypt

Egypt relies on the Nile river for 95% of its freshwater needs for irrigation, drinking and industrial purposes. Facing that issue, the German Science Centre (DWZ) Cairo hosted an expert workshop on Riverbank Filtration on September 26, 2016.

Riverbank Filtration (RBF) is a resource efficient technique to produce large quantities of freshwater supply that has been used in Germany for more than a century. In order to foster exchange between German and Egyptian experts in the field of RBF, the Egyptian German Water Cluster cooperated with the National Water Research Center – at which premises in Qanater the workshop was held – and the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater.
