As part of our corporate social responsibility, Metito hosted a delegation of 41 Students and teachers from Ashoka Business School – India at the Dubai Investments Park (DIP) project site to raise awareness about the pressing issue of water scarcity and discuss wastewater recycling and reuse. The visit was organized by the Wheel of Innovation Committee – India.
The visit started with an introductory presentation to educate the students about the challenges associated with water scarcity and the lack of access to clean and safe drinking water which are prevalent in many parts of the world, the students were then escorted to a tour of the facilities. The presentation covered the latest trends and statistics on freshwater availability, water scarcity, water demand, and how water recycling and reuse can support tightening the gap between the supply and demand of water. During the Q&A session, the students expressed great interest in the water sector, and many shared their concerns, particularly about sludge disposal, its impact on the environment, and the need for more initiatives to promote the recycling and reuse of water. The tour of the facilities explained the step-by-step procedure to produce high-quality water output using environmentally friendly processes and technology.
The students and teachers were welcomed by Mohamed Hamdy, Metito SPC Manager – Operations, Gems Evardo, Metito Corporate Communication Coordinator, and other representatives from Metito’s DIP plant.
