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 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.
