THE FUTURE OF
our goals & objectives
Be the global leader in renewable-energy powered desalination and full integrated resource recovery seawater treatment (FIRrST)
NEOM takes water infrastructure into a new era, integrating desalination and brine processing plants and powering them with sustainable carbon-neutral technologies. We’re committed to a fully integrated resource recovery seawater treatment (FIRrST) to conserve the Red Sea ecosystem - a world-first at this scale.
Design and implement a smart network that distributes high-standard water to all of NEOM
NEOM is building smart water systems powered by renewable energy, delivering high-quality drinking water and recycled water across its network, while removing wastewater. Smart metering and irrigation, leakage detection, and water quality monitoring will be controlled in real time.
Pioneer water recycling and stewardship, capturing every drop and treating it for reuse
Superior transmission and storage, network monitoring and 100% wastewater and stormwater reuse are key to water conservation at NEOM. Chemicals, nutrients, minerals and more resources will be harvested in state-of-the-art water recycling facilities for industrial and agricultural use.
Create a global innovation hub for the research and development of the water solutions of the future
NEOM’s Innovation Hub will house Centers of Excellence focused on the investigation of water usage and management, attracting the world’s greatest minds. By exporting technology, knowledge and expertise, NEOM’s Water Solution Company will become the global leader in water technology.
