SUEZ's UF and RO membranes support world's largest membrane-based water reuse project in Kuwait - Water. desalination + reuse

Kuwait is located in the most water-scarce region of the world and is predicted by the World Resources Institute to be one of the most water-stressed countries by 2040.

Kuwait has no permanent rivers or lakes and its limited groundwater supplies are deteriorating in quantity and quality due to continuous pumping that exceeds re-charge rates.1 To meet domestic and industrial fresh-water needs, Kuwait relies primarily on desalination.

 

Challenge

With little natural water resources and one of the world’s highest per capita consumptions of water, Kuwait faces mounting challenges in coping with water stress and meeting the rising water demands of a growing population. For enhancing the country’s future water security, Kuwait identified the need to expand its water resources by developing new sources of water, thus creating more diversified supplies and reducing its dependency on desalination.
