“Corodex is very honoured to win the UAE National Winner for two consecutive years on the same category. This is a testament to the team's ability to offer sophisticated water reuse solution. Thanks also to the top management of Al Barari for conceptualizing a green solution for their project and for entrusting Corodex to deliver this solution”, concluded Awad.
Today, Al Barari is a true desert oasis that protects the environment with its water reuse treatment plants in-place.
