Both institutions will also organise joint training, conferences and workshops in many areas related to waste management and recycling.
Commenting on the agreement, Dr Mustafawi said: “CAS is pleased to partner with Global EnerTec, which will serve to advance our students’ skills and knowledge in the field of waste management and recycling. Through the expertise of Global EnerTec scientists, our students will benefit from sound opportunities to develop research ideas that are aligned with national initiatives on managing, reducing and re-purposing waste as part of the country’s stated goals on environment conservation and sustainable development.”

This MoU builds on the past success of a previous MoU signed between QU and laboratories of environmental analysis in 2013.
