2017-12-20 00:00:00.0

The Qatar University Gas Research Center (QU-GPC) organized recently a public lecture on “Qatar - Water Security under Blockade”, aiming to highlight the current situation of Qatar in terms of consumption of portable water, the cost of desalination and suggest solutions to address the problem of groundwater shortage.

The lecture was presented by the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at the University of Regina, Prof Amr Henni, in the presence of the Dean of College of Engineering (CENG) Dr Khalifa bin Nasser Al Khalifa, CENG Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and GPC Acting Director Prof Abdelmagid Hammuda, as well as CENG and GPC faculty members.

During the lecture, Prof Henni mentioned some of the possible methods to reuse the water produced in the industrial field, such as the use of dedicated technology to reduce the toxicity of industrial wastewater and raise its potential for irrigation and cleaning facilities. Furthermore, Prof Henni discussed the new technological advancement in the world that help in water recycling, such as the one used in Australia. This method allows homes to reuse the water produced by washing machines and dishwashers through a cycle that process and clean the water used and return it to the house pipe system to be used again, thus providing the house with an infinite source of water.

Commenting on the lecture, Dr Khalifa bin Nasser Al Khalifa said: "QU-CENG is committed to water security research through the coordination with several local and international research teams to carry out advanced research in this field to come up with practical mechanisms and programs to ensure the strengthening of water security. Hence, holding such educational lectures and initiatives supports these efforts.”
