Israeli Water Expert Tours Brazil Towards WATEC

By: Mickey Chesla, Blog Manager

Israeli water expert Beni Lew toured Brazil, bringing news from Israel’s water industry and technologies to this severely water strapped country.

Everyone’s talking about the drought in California, but in Brazil there are actually places where the faucets are running dry.  Beni Lew, a lecturer specializing in water and wastewater at Israel’s Volcani Center, just returned from a tour of Brazil, organized by Israel NewTech, the Economic Office in São Paulo and the Israel Export Institute.  We asked him about the situation in Brazil and what Israel can do to help.BrazilAugust

“There was a campaign in Israel recently ‘Israel is drying up’ to encourage the population to save water, but actually it’s Brazil which is drying up,” says Lew.  “São Paulo’s water reservoir, Cantareira, is almost empty, at only 5%, and there have been times when parts of the city have been cut off from the water supply altogether.  Brazil is looking to Israel, where they know water resources are very limited, for technologies to help confront their water shortages.”

The tour began on August 3rd in Pernambuco in the north of Brazil, in a meeting with 80 local water experts, including the president of that state’s water utility.  The next day Lew lectured in Brasilia and met with government officials active in the water arena, and ended in São Paulo, where Lew presented at two events, including Fenasan, Brazil’s largest water event.

“Beni Lew was the perfect person to present on Israel’s water arena,” says Boaz Albaranes, Israel’s Economic Attaché in São Paulo.  “The audience was always pleasantly surprised to hear him speak in fluent Portuguese, and he presented in a way that was accessible, but also with a level of expertise that enabled him to address every question that arose.”

One of the tour’s main objectives was to encourage Brazilian delegations to arrange to come to theWATEC 2015 event, to take place in October in Tel Aviv.  “I think we were able to raise a lot of interest, and I would be happy to invite Beni Lew again to Brazil,” concluded Albaranes.

So what technologies were of greatest interest to the Brazilian water professionals?  “In the north there is a lot of interest in irrigation technologies for agriculture,” explains Lew, since it’s a heavily agricultural area.  “And everyone everywhere is interested in desalination and wastewater purification, because of the severe water shortages.  I believe there is a lot that Israeli companies can do to help Brazil’s water sector.”

Israel and India Move towards Ganges Rejuvenation

 Israel and India Move towards Ganges Rejuvenation

By: Mickey Chesla, Blog ManagerAn Israel NewTech delegation returned from India, where the cooperation towards the cleanup of the polluted Ganges River was advanced.  An interview with Oded Distel.Oded Distel and the delegation in India

“We have been working closely with the Indian government for some time, but there is a very strong sense that now things are moving into high gear with the Ganges rejuvenation project,” says Oded Distel, Head of Israel NewTech.  Cleaning up the Ganges River is a task of gargantuan proportions, and India’s relatively newly established Prime Minister Narendra Modi has placed it in very high priority. Distel just returned from a delegation visit to India, which he attended together with Israeli water experts such as Professor Yoram Oren, a world renowned expert in membrane technology. The delegation met with a number of industrial and academic associations in India.

Israel’s water industry has much to gain from Israel’s involvement in the Ganges cleanup initiative.  There are dozens of Israeli companies active in wastewater reclamation and other technologies who would have a lot to offer in the framework of the project.

Distel told us about some concrete steps Israel NewTech has undertaken to advance the project: “We, together with Yoni Benzaken and the team at the New Delhi Economic Mission and a consulting company, put together a thorough report on the source of the pollution of the Ganges.” (click here to view the full report).  According to Distel, the first step to cleaning the River is to stop the flow of toxins into it by factories.  “We discovered that the ‘leading’ polluters are paper mills, chemical companies and tanneries.  In this visit we toured a number of tanneries, to better understand their processes and needs, and to see how Israeli technologies could play a role in minimizing the pollution they produce and pour into the Ganges.”

The current government in India places heavy emphasis on the project, and has established theMinistry of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation, the heads of which met with the Israeli delegation. But challenges still lay ahead.  According to Distel, there are laws in place in India prohibiting pollution of the Ganges by factories, but there is an issue with enforcement.

An agreement between India and Israel is set to be signed, putting in place milestones for cooperation on the project.  These include an Indian water industry delegation to Israel next month, and an Indian delegation to the upcoming WATEC event in October.

“The relationship between Israel and India in the water sector is very strong, both at the government and industry levels,” concludes Oded Distel.  “The Ganges cleanup project has been years in the making and we’ve been there every step of the way.  I believe its execution is right around the corner, and when it happens it will mean very big news – and business – for a large number of Israeli water companies.”

Israel companies which offer technologies relevant to the Ganges rejuvenation project are invited tocontact the Israeli Economic Mission in New Delhi
