BGU researchers are working to ensure the availability of high quality water for Israel and the world.
Dwindling water supply and quality impede the sustainable development of drylands and the well-being of their growing populations. Scientists at BGU’s Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research are developing technologies for advancing water supply in Israel and other arid regions, and for preventing pollution and degradation of aquifers and soil. They are improving water resource management and developing new natural and recycled resources. Particular emphasis is placed on developing high-tech, affordable methodologies for desalination and wastewater treatment.
