Traditionally, if you are in a water-poor region that has access to desalination technology and seawater, you were in luck. Israeli cleantechnology company ROTEC has developed a reverse osmosis system designed to remove salts from brackish groundwater. In other words, nowhere near the sea.
A new Israeli technology for desalination is the centrepiece of a NATO grant that promotes collaboration between Israel and Jordan and could save water and energy across the globe.
New York, NY -- Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev are developing technology to scale up a novel method for achieving very high recoveries in desalination by reverse osmosis to be used in a Jordanian desalinization plant.
Ben-Gurion University scientists are tackling two of the Middle East's biggest issues in one go: peace and the environment. They have received grants to develop new desalination technology that is faster and cheaper than conventional ways of cleaning dirty groundwater.
New startup ROTEC plans to commercialize the technology out of Ben-Gurion University that promises a faster, cheaper method of reverse-osmosis desalination to clean dirty groundwater.
