Creating affordable water solutions through sustainability and innovation
Who we are
Advanced Water Technology (AWT), based in Saudi Arabia, is a newly formed subsidiary of TAQNIA, the commercial arm of King Abdulaziz City for Science & Technology (KACST).
Embracing the entire water value chain from upstream desalination to downstream reuse and water management, AWT helps develop sustainable water solutions that ensure water's abundance and accessibility.
Powered by Solar
Building the world's first large-scale desalination plant powered by solar (Al Khafji, KSA,), AWT is developing sustainable water solutions that produce more water with less energy.
Part of the King Abdullah Initiative for Renewable Energy, Al Khafji represents a milestone in innovation and in the water industry's drive toward sustainability.
Sustainability & Innovation
Even in time of declining oil costs, the world continues to embrace sustainabilty. Price volatilty, subisidy dependence and the environmental impact of oil's carbon emissions continue to underscore the need to shift to renewable energy sources.
Moving in the direction of sustainabily is driving innovation in the water industry, causing a paradigm shift and a rethink of the way business is done.
