The event, held on 20 June, marked the launch of a first series of stakeholder workshops with the theme Changing the Paradigm for Wastewater Reuse.  

Participants were invited to identify the issues and challenges related to the reuse of treated wastewater as well as possible solutions to overcome these. Interviews with stakeholders in Lebanon, conducted by the Lebanese University earlier this year already brought into focus some of the stark realities faced on the ground.

The workshop also brought the opportunity to discuss and collect the feedback and expectations about the envisaged AQUACYCLE project outcomes.

EU-funded AQUACYCLE is set to bring an eco-innovative wastewater treatment technology that will consist of anaerobic digestion, constructed wetlands and solar treatment for the cost-effective treatment of urban wastewater with minimal costs of operation and maximum environmental benefits.
