Qassim University is one of the participating universities, and they have a display featuring multiple inventions and innovations.

Faculty member Abdulaziz bin Bani Alharbi of Qassim’s College of Agriculture and Food said that the college was exhibiting a patent that was filed with the Saudi Authority for Intellectual Property, which described a process for using a halophyte plant to desalinate salt water.
