Israel & Denmark Keen to partner in Ganga Cleanup
Jun 14, 2014

Ganga cleanup programme and mission for clean water has attracted interest from foreign nations. Israel and Denmark, global leaders in water technology and water management, say they can be part of this particular national mission.

Israeli ambassador to India said, "Think about the purification of the holy Ganges. I have a list of 200 Israeli companies that can do this. If you go from Gujarat down to Tamil Nadu and up to Hyderabad, you will come across more than two dozen Israeli desalination plants. Some huge, others not so big. There are places in some cities where you probably will drink water from Israeli desalination plants, joint projects with state governments. This is good water, very good water. The plants are exactly the same as on the shores of the Mediterranean. Israel loses just about 8% of what we put in the pipes, the best figure in the world. Indian figures are higher. The beauty of water management is that you simply enlarge your water collection by saving water."

Danish ambassador to India Freddy Svane said, “Already, a consortium of Danish water companies are operating in Gujarat, even conducting a pilot project for water management in Rajkot. Copenhagen harbour was a perfect case study of implementation of new technologies for water management. Danish companies can undertake impact studies, cleaning up of water and even provide enzymatic solutions to reduce waste water in quantity and quality.”
