  • The largest seawater reverse osmosis desalination plant in the world produces 20% of domestic water consumption.
  • Sixty to 80% of Israel’s municipal water, adjusted according to season and real-time demand, flows from large coastal desalination plants.
  • Israel recycles 87% of its wastewater for agriculture, much more than any other country in the world.
