AMMAN — The Jordan Ministry of Water and Irrigation has appointed Metito, a global provider of total intelligent water management and alternative energy solutions, to rehabilitate Central Irbid Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and Wadi Al-Arab WWTP following a competitive bid. The project worth 42 million euro will cut greenhouse emissions by approximately 6,600 metric tons annually and provide over 10 million cubic meters of treated effluent water per year, creating a more sustainable environment and a healthier community.
