Jordan faces chronic water scarcity due to the very limited water resources and increasing water demand. Also increasing the energy cost of wastewater treatment raises the need to think about Sustainable Energy-Water-Environment Nexus in a dry climate. Moreover, wastewater treatment near to the generation place and reuse it at the same points is needed for decreases energy demand, save the cost and protect the environment. However, the innovations in decentralized wastewater technologies in Jordan aiming not only to treat the municipal wastewater but also to reuse water, energy, and nutrient again. Lab-analysis shows extremely high treatment efficiency that can be achieved by studied technologies to reduce BOD5 to 98.8%, COD to 96.5% and achievement high nitrification rate and good reduction of the parameters TSS, NO3, TN, and E. coli, to meet the Jordanian Standards for reuse.
