    (ANSAmed) - NAPLES, JANUARY 3 - The Palestinian Wastewater Engineers Group (PalWeg) has issued a call for tenders for soil survey and soil maps for a project using purified wastewater and brackish water to improve crops.

    PalWeg is the Palestinian company tasked with applying the Mediterranean Integrated System for Water Supply (Mediss) project in the country.

    The project aims to best use hydrological resources in particularly dry areas to allow for agricultural development.

    It also aims to improve the quality of saline waters in the Mediterranean area by opening the way for more differentiated farming with improved soil irrigation.

    The project involves the Jordan Valley in Palestine; the Aqaba Governorate in Jordan; Arborea in Sicily, Italy; and Gabes in Tunisia.

    For each of these areas, according to their specific needs, Mediss tests innovative solutions for the use of wastewater and brackish water.

    Techniques in a testing phase include the use of pure waters to mix with salt waters, desalination through reverse osmosis with innovative membranes, and the use of systems to remove ammonia from water.

    The project starts in Palestine and Jordan with the preparation of soil mapping in pre-established areas, through the gathering of photographic material, soil samples, soil analysis, and the study of waters present in the area.
