Ben-Gurion University of the Negev water technology start-up ROTEC was named one of the top 50 water companies by the Artemis Project this month.
ROTEC’s Innovative patented Flow Reversal (FR) technology and system are used to prevent scaling in reverse osmosis and nano filtration membrane desalination systems.
A new start-up company, ROTEC (Reverse Osmosis Technologies), has been established to commercialize the technology. ROTEC has already been chosen by Mekorot national water company as a promising firm in which it will invest research and development funds.
Traditionally, if you are in a water-poor region that has access to desalination technology and seawater, you were in luck. Israeli cleantechnology company ROTEC has developed a reverse osmosis system designed to remove salts from brackish groundwater. In other words, nowhere near the sea.
