May 31, Fineko/abc.az. In Azerbaijan, it is proposed to use purified wastewater mixed with biological fertilizers to grow certain agricultural products.

ABC.AZ reports that Mirsalam Ganbarov, chairman of board of the State Agency for Environmental Expertise of the Ministry of Ecology & Natural Resources of Azerbaijan, made such a proposal at a conference dedicated to project Young Agro-Entrepreneurs, funded by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

He added that this way it is possible to save water and at the same time increase agricultural productivity.

"To do this, the sewer networks of all regions must be connected to centralized systems, and wastewater must be treated within the limits of the standard," Ganbarov added.
