AMMAN — The Ministry of Water and Irrigation, in cooperation with the German embassy in Jordan, ​​on Tuesday organised a workshop concerning the feasibility study of a project to manage sludge resulting from wastewater purification plants, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported. 

Water Minister Mohammad Al Najjar said that the workshop aims to identify the latest modern global techniques in treating and utilising sludge, prepare feasibility studies and implement projects in sewage plants operating in the Kingdom.

In the presence of the First Secretary for Development and Cooperation at the German embassy, ​​Nicholas von Kalm, and a number of representatives of water companies, Najjar said that the workshop comes as part of a project, funded by the German Reconstruction Bank, to dispose of environmentally friendly, treated sewage sludge in Jordan.

He added that the sludge can be used to run the stations themselves by generating electrical energy from natural gas produced in the station, which will protect groundwater basins from wastewater pollution and convert purification waste into agricultural fertilisers or biofuel to be reused in different industries.
