Israel’s Water Industry
The Ambassador explained that “Water Technologies have been a national priority in Israel” and as such “The Israeli water industry is recognized today as a global leader in the water arena thanks to breakthrough technological innovations in areas such as desalination, drip irrigation and water security”.
By the end of this year, 2013, desalination plants in Israel will supply more than 500 million cubic meters of water per year, supplying 35% of the country’s fresh water needs and with 75% of its waste water reused in Agriculture allow for the fact that Israel’s water consumption has remained basically the same in nearly 50 years, despite the doubling of its population and growing industry and agriculture sectors.
