The Israeli water industry is recognized as a global leader in the water arena thanks to breakthrough technological innovations in areas such as desalination, water treatment and water security:

The Hadera seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination plant in Israel is one of the largest of its kind in the world ●  Israel reclaims almost 75% of its reused effluents in agriculture ● Israel’s total water consumption has remained nearly the same since 1964, in spite of a growing population and agriculture. This feat has been enabled through improved efficiency and technological innovation ● By 2013, desalination plants in Israel will supply more than 500 million m3 of water per year, supplying 35% of the country’s fresh water needs.

Water is an extremely precious commodity in Israel. The landscape there provides the perfect environment for researching and developing water technologies in ‘real-world’ conditions. In that regard there are so many similarities between Israel and South Africa when it comes to water and the obvious need for cooperation between our countries to meet these challenges.

Watec Israel 2011

Watec Israel 2011 is one of the most important water related conferences globally. The Embassy of Israel, in conjunction with the Israel Export Institute, has put together 2 programmes that showcase the Israeli experience alongside with the newest innovation in two areas: municipal and industrial. We would honoured to have Your company at the trip to Israel (13-16 November).

As a country that suffers from water scarcity, Israel developed world class technologies that supported us in making the desert a flourishing garden, develop modern agriculture and use our water resources in the most efficient way. Israel treats 91% of its water, 76% are being recycled and reused. Israel produces 50% of its water needs by desalinating sea water and recycling. That fortune has enabled us to develop an advanced water technology industry that, we believe, can be very instrumental in rising up to the challenges faced by the mining industry in South Africa.

The Embassy of Israel has partnered with a local team, comprised of 3 mine water specialists:  Prof Jannie Maree, Mr Meiring du Plessis and Mr Wynand Louw. They visited Israel to screen the Israeli companies and found out that the water technologies available are either new or improvements over what is currently in use in South Africa.

We would like to invite you to a mine water brokerage event organized by the Embassy of Israel. The event will take place  on the 12th of October, from 09h00 to 17h00, at the Hotel balalaika in Sandton (20 Maude St.) where we host 16 companies from Israel and mining groups and engineering firms from South Africa.

The Israeli and south African companies will engage in 1 on 1 meetings session, with the hope to find common ground for cooperation. Please, see the below catalogue of mine water solutions from Israel. We invite you to have a look at the catalogue an mark for us companies that are interesting for you to meet in person and we will schedule the meeting for you.

Israel is known for making the desert a flourishing garden. The country is World’s No. 1 in Water recycling – 76% and the most efficient in water desalination ($55c per cubic meter).

That know-how can be used to change the way South Africa thinks and treats its water issues and introduce innovative solutions to the mining sector in this country. The Embassy of Israel will host a group of Israeli water technology companies on 11-14 October.
