As several countries in the Middle East region are aligned with the international protocols on climate change and carbon emission reduction, it is an increasingly important priority to ensure a sustainable and cost-effective potable water supply.  Shuqaiq-3 embraces all these aspects, as it is an efficient and safe alternative to the thermal desalination technology.
