  1. Cost-effective and efficient water systems

The sessions illustrated the status quo and challenges of the Egyptian water sector and highlighted German technology solutions in the areas of waste water management, sewage treatment, energy efficiency for water systems, sludge to energy, advanced automation and filtration systems as well as renewable energies for desalination.
