The earth is running out of fresh water.

By 2025, two-thirds of the world's population will live in water-stressed conditions, according to U.N. estimates.

Researchers at the

Technion-Israel Institute of Technology

have developed techniques that today

enable Israel to recycle up to 60% of its wastewater, more than any other country.

Under the auspices of the Stephen and Nancy Grand Water Research Institute, scientists have developed

recycling ponds for small villages that yield water for crop irrigation. New Technion developments, using

membranes to remove salt, promise to desalinate water at lower costs.

The American Technion Society is proud to be a partner in these efforts. With your help, we can ensure that

Israel's scientists continue shaping a stronger Israel and a better, safer world. Join us.

Join us for opportunities to visit the Technion,
