Construction Begins On Sharjah Waste-To-Water Plant


Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and Belgium-headquartered construction giant Besix Group have started construction and development work on Qatra, a water reuse plant in Sharjah’s Al-Saja’a industrial area that upon completion in January 2020, will produce 5,000m3 of water per day for non-drinking purposes from Al Saja’a Sewerage Treatment Plant’s treated effluent. Water produced by Qatra will be ideal for industrial and domestic purposes, such as landscaping, and is said to be a sustainable alternative to desalinated water – with four times lower energy consumption in the production process.
