Reusing water in Isfahan

In partnership with Wahang Saran, an Iranian EPC contractor specialising in wastewater treatment, Witteveen+Bos has recently completed a project which is the first of its kind.

All wastewater from a steel mill in Isfahan can now be recycled and reused. Historic Isfahan is Iran’s second largest city and is located in a particularly arid region. To achieve expansion, the steel mill has no option but to reuse water. Based on the success of this project, Witteveen+Bos and Wahang Saran intend to continue their collaboration and bid for similar water recycling projects elsewhere. Witteveen+Bos can of course contribute the extensive knowledge we have gained in projects such as the design of an ultra-pure water plant in Emmen for our client NAM. A Memorandum of Understanding has now been signed to formalise the partnership.
