Australia has a substantial resources industry and is a world leader in mining technologies. The mining industry is a major user of water and is in constant search of better water technologies to suit the special needs of this sector.

Israel is known as the Silicon Valley of water. Israel has been confronted with extremely limited natural resources due to its location and terrain. It has had to develop innovative water technologies and waste water treatment solutions, and is becoming a world leader in the field of cleantech. Currently, Israel recycles over 70% of all water used.  

With Israel being one of the world leaders in clean tech and water technology, there is a clear synergy between these sectors and vast opportunities for collaboration between the two countries.
