Position: Assistant undersecretary, sanitary engineering sector

Biography Khaled al-Khazi has been chief engineer at Kuwait’s Public Works Ministry’s sanitary engineering sector for two years.

Prior to this, he worked in the ministry’s laboratories for a year and spent 10 years as a director in the quality control department. His other previous roles include working for several years as head of the construction department. Al-Khazi graduated with a degree in civil engineering in 1984.

Kuwait was one of the first Gulf states to build a wastewater network, covering about 100 square kilometres, in the 1950s. The Public Works Ministry has since launched a series of wastewater treatment facilities to cope with increasing demand.

About 60 per cent of the country’s wastewater is treated at its 425,000 cubic metres a day facility at Sulaibiya, which began operating in 2004.
