6.3.2 Preventing water system pollution

AASTMT relies on a distinct water storage system in tanks specifically designated for drinking purposes, entirely separate from the sewage system. This strict separation ensures that the water reserved for drinking remains completely isolated from sewage water, upholding a stringent standard to assure the absolute safety and purity of the institution's potable water supply.

Incorporating Waste Management System

AASTMT is committed to supporting SDG 6, particularly indicator 6.3.2, which focuses on the proportion of wastewater safely treated to meet quality standards. Recognizing the critical role it plays in preserving water quality, AASTMT has implemented a robust Recycling Policy, aiming to minimize its environmental footprint and reduce the discharge of pollutants into water sources. The institution has also established Medical/Toxic Waste Disposal Contracts with Nahdet Misr for Modern Environmental services for lifting, transporting, and treating hazardous wastes to ensure the safe and responsible disposal of hazardous materials, preventing contamination of water supplies. Additionally, AASTMT engages in Waste Disposal company contracts to efficiently manage and dispose of general waste, further mitigating potential environmental impacts. To reinforce these efforts, the institution adheres to Environmental Standard ISO-14001, providing a systematic framework for managing environmental responsibilities.
