A delegation of Israeli water companies headed to California on Thursday, in order to promote solutions to the severe drought that the coastal state has been facing, the Economy Ministry said that evening.
The firms, which hail from the fields of water purification and management, are visiting the state as part of a broader effort to increase cooperation between Israel and California in the water industry. Among the companies in the delegation are the bio-security firm Atlantium Technologies, water filtration specialists Amiad and Triple-T wastewater treatment, the Economy Ministry said. While in California, the Israeli firms will meet with representatives from a variety of companies, such as Leprino Foods, Costco, Coca Cola, Anheuser-Busch and the PSOMAS energy firm, as well as water corporations in Los Angeles and San Francisco. In addition, the Israeli companies will meet with officials in California's Department of Water, the Department of Agriculture and the governor's office, the ministry said.
