THE FUTURE OF
WATER

NEOM has an unprecedented opportunity to become a global leader in water production, distribution, treatment and reuse by constantly innovating to find better ways to use and protect this valuable resource.

NEOM aims to lead a paradigm shift in the water industry: to produce plentiful water in a sustainable and profitable way.

our goals & objectives

  • 01

    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.

  • 02

    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.

  • 03

    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.

  • 04

    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.

NEOM water infrastructure

NEOM will meet all its water needs through desalination using revolutionary and sustainable technology, which is fully powered by renewable energy. High value chemicals and minerals for use in industry will be extracted from the brine left behind by the desalination process and, in order to protect the marine ecosystem, we are committed to a fully integrated resource recovery seawater treatment (FIRrST) – a world first at this scale. 100% of wastewater will be recycled and used for irrigation. We are determined to recover all resources from wastewater and biosolids and harvest cellulose, nutrients, grit and biogas. These will be used for landscaping, agriculture, construction and offset energy needs.
