Amr Seoudy Water Treatment Award 2024
Water Treatment Competition 2024 - EDITION 03
WTCO is pleased to announce the 3rd edition of Amr Seoudy Water Treatment Award for the best case study paper in the field of Desalination, Water Purification, Sewage Treatment and Industrial Wastewater Treatment.


Mankind owes scholars and philosophers in various fields the credit for the sophistication and progress that the world is experiencing in our modern era, and without the insistence of scientists and philosophers, we would not have been blessed with what we are in all aspects of life. Scientists across the world face many difficulties in a various ways, and it was hard to achieve their creativity because of lack of moral, material support and absence of suitable climate to achieve their creations, this delay came from others that not accepting their ideas for personal reasons, deficiency in understanding of the new ideas they provide, economic competition, lack of adequate financial support or procedures in addition to the routine that hinders the implementation of their ambitions. How many researchers, scientists and creators have been frustrated or with destroyed scientific ambition as a result of the presence of one or several reasons that have been explained earlier, some of these researchers have despair and others has intellectual oppression in addition to those who migrated to another countries to continue their creativity leaving behind many of their dreams, so that they can achieve success and who continues to resist the previous reasons in an attempt to overcome it. We believe that achieving progress and creativity in any field has two basic aspects, which are science and work, as they are two sides of the same coin, and everyone knows with no doubt about any currency with one side is not of value. Any field of life is like a coin with two sides of knowledge and work. If you can combine both sides, this field becomes valuable, and if you separate them, it becomes worthless. If researchers and scientists in their laboratories and science halls separated from workers in factories and sites their science and knowledge will be useless. When scientists’ knowledge reaches the scientific application for the benefit of workers, it will be much of use, and the opposite is true. Then, the workers have a link that is inseparable and uninterrupted with scientists, and if it is separated again, it becomes like one-sided currency with no value and no benefit.

Let us all start with each in its own field and at its best, even if it is difficult today to put both sides of the coin back in place so that tomorrow it will be of value and benefit.
It is in this spirit that I decided to start with myself and, as much as I can, to present an award for the best research in the field of water treatment for the best case study paper in the field of the field of Desalination, Water Purification, Sewage Treatment and Industrial Wastewater Treatment.
