Abu Dhabi school children carry out water quality monitoring tests

Borouge's Andy Wedgner together with experts from Consultants CH2MHill and the Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) gave the children of Glenelg School in Abu Dhabi a special treat when they organised a Water Monitoring Day at their ECO Club.
During the session they were told about the “Water Footprint”, i.e. the amount of water needed to make some familiar products, such as the 2,400 litres of water taken to produce a single hamburger and the “Water for the World” initiative of Borouge and Borealis and some of the projects undertaken to bring water to people in need in different parts of the world.
The children were then helped to carry out tests on water samples that they had gathered earlier in the day and the event concluded with the presentation of certificates and a number of small gifts to remind them of the event. The school Science Coordinator Dana Dababneh commented afterwards: “The children really appreciated the session and gained a new understanding of the importance of water to all living creatures on Earth including ourselves. I would to personally like to thank all the contributors for making the event so interesting and entertaining.”
