Using treated wastewater in industries has the potential not only to ease stress on dwindling freshwater resources, but also to increase the availability of water for household and agricultural use, the energy minister said.
“As per the directive issued by the Energy Ministry, it is obligatory for all industrial units located in drought-hit central plateau to use reclaimed wastewater [instead of potable water] in their production lines by 2023,” Ali Akbar Mehrabian was also quoted as saying by Mehr News agency.
