A Sacred River turns into a Mess
The Ganges River provides India with more than 25 per cent of India’s total water resources. The river is considered sacred for Hindus, who believe its waters represent the goddess Gaṅgā. It is also consistently ranked as one of the filthiest rivers in the world.
Israel’s greatest innovations in recent years have come in the areas where India is most lacking, notably wastewater treatment.
“Waste water treatment facilities are a big consumer of energy globally and whenever you are able to minimize the amount of energy you use there, it’s a big, big advantage,” Distel says.
