Ahmed Moawad, the Vice President of the Holding Company for Water and Wastewater (HCWW) said that Egypt aims to localize the desalination industry, Al-Shorouk Newspaper reported.

Desalination stations will be set up across the coastal cities of Matrouh, Red Sea, North and South Sinai- as part of the plan.

“The 2037 scheme aims to bring the overall daily production capacity of Egypt’s desalination plants to about 2.7 million cubic meters,” he added.

Meanwhile, a number of stations are being implemented- forecast to yield 685k cubic meters of water.

Water scarcity is one of the core challenges, scaring the living daylights out of the third world’s countries.

It is not only scarcity knocking the alarm, water resources in Egypt endure drastic difficulties embracing mismanagement, pollution as well as uneven distribution.
