RIYADH, Saudi Arabia

— Saudi Arabia's multi-billion-dollar economic cities, to be constructed in different parts of the kingdom over a 25-year period, along with its 24 industrial cities, will need wastewater treatment and recycling technology to meet non-potable water needs.

Work has already begun on the $26.6 billion USD King Abdullah Economic City in the Western Province of Rabigh.
