Qatar University and ExxonMobil water reuse research

Qatar University and ExxonMobil Research Qatar are partnering to research industrial wastewater reuse technologies.

In particular, researchers are studying phytoremediation, a process using plants to clean and process industrial wastewater naturally in an engineered wetlands system. The treated wastewater could then potentially be reused in non-potable applications, such as park or green-space irrigation. The year-long study is part of ExxonMobil Research Qatar’s water reuse research program.
