CAIRO, Egypt

The Holding Company for Drinking Water and Sanitary Sewers announced earlier this month that it would start experimenting with a new technology to purify drinking water, according to company officials.

The new technology, which has already been used in Europe, the United States and some Asian countries for 20 years, is based on membrane filtration.
