The article focuses on the water-related technologies being developed by companies in Israel. Israel already recycles 60 percent of its sewage water and operates two of the world's largest desalination plants. By 2013, the government is projecting that more than 20 percent of the country's water will come from desalination. And all the accumulated expertise is expected to help export earnings. The Israel Export Institute predicts that exports of water-related technologies like drip irrigation, desalination, and water purification will rack up more than $1 billion in offshore sales in 2007. Siemens and General Electric have partnered with state-owned Mekorot Water to market proven Israeli water technologies.
