MOREL, A.; DIENER, S. (2006): Decentralised greywater reuse for irrigation in peri-urban areas. Case study from Ein Al Beida, Jordan. In: MOREL, A.; DIENER, S. (2006): Greywater Management in Low and Middle-Income Countries, Review of Different Treatment Systems for Households or Neighbourhoods. Duebendorf, 69-72.

The International Development Research Centre (IDRC) provided financial assistance to an applied research project on greywater treatment and reuse for home garden irrigation in 25 low-income households in Ein Al Beida village, southern Jordan. The main objective was to help the peri-urban poor in Jordan preserve precious freshwater, achieve food security and generate income, while helping to protect the environment. An anaerobic vertical flow filter (AVF) and an anaerobic up-flow filter (AUF) were tested in parallel.
