Due to rising demand, growing populations and environmental pressures, industrial wastewater treatment and reuse has become an attractive alternative to freshwater sourcing worldwide. In Uzbekistan – an arid, landlocked country that receives 85 percent of its total water supply from neighboring upstream countries – sustainable water management is critical to help reduce competition for local resources and help ensure economic growth more broadly.
In the Navoiy region – one of Uzbekistan’s largest industrial centers –a series of major development projects are in place to help boost the production of mineral fertilizers, chemical reagents and other small tonnage chemical products, while also meeting the country’s environmental standards.
One of these projects is the construction of nitric acid production facility, with an expected capacity of 1,500 metric tons per day to be used in fertilizer.
