Top Indian Official Seeks Israeli Expertise on Waste Water Recycling
A top Indian political leader is seeking cooperation with Israel in the realm of waste water recycling, Punjab Newsline reported on Thursday.
Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh met on Wednesday in Jerusalem with Israeli Minister of Energy and Water Resources Yuval Steinitz. The main agenda item was “the issue of water management to boost water conservation in Punjab,” the report said.
Singh “was impressed with the fact that 95% of sewerage water was being recycled for agriculture in Israel and said Punjab would like to do the same in urban areas,” the report added.
He also called Israel’s drip irrigation technology a “laudable initiative that Punjab could adopt to its advantage.”
Last year, Israel and India celebrated the 25th anniversary of the official establishment of diplomatic relations. Ties between the two countries have flourished in numerous realms in recent years.
