Citing the centre’s target to clean the holy river Ganga in three years, Israel has shown its interest in sharing its expertise on water purification and waste water treatment. This is PM Narendra Modi’s pet project for cleaning Holy Ganga.
Israel’s Head of Economic and Trade Mission Yonatan Ben-Zaken said, “We have already met the Union Water Resources Minister Uma Bharti and the concerned Secretary few times, we want to be involved. We offered our knowledge, technology and technical know-how (for the project)”.
Ben-Zaken was speaking on sidelines of a seminar on ‘Water Security & Waste Water Management’.
Israel is famous worldwide for its expertise in waste water treatment, purification and water reuse for agriculture and industry.
“We are in talks and we think that cleaning industrial pollutants from the river (Ganga) should be first priority,” Yonatan added.
