Title: Solid Waste Treatment Project and Water Emission Management in Egypt
The project objectives extend from reaping benefits from accumulated raw salt stockpiles to protection of the marine biology, especially the fish resources of Karoun Lake (Egypt). The degree of salinity in the lake is being controlled also. Sodium sulfate, sodium chloride, magnesium chloride and magnesium sulfate will be gained and, due to the importance of these materials, studies and research are performed to benefit from these salts.
