The Israeli water industry is today recognised as a global leader in the water arena thanks to breakthrough technological innovations in areas such as desalination, drip irrigation and water security. Remarkably, 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. In fact, Israel reclaims almost 75% of its reused effluents in agriculture.
Israel’s expertise in areas such as water security, water management and leak detection and prevention are of increasing relevance to the UK industry. Recently there have been numerous examples of Israeli and British companies working together to provide clean, safe water to the UK.
