Brazilian Foreign Affairs Minister and Brazilian Ambassador Tour the Sorek Desalination Plant

The Brazilian Foreign Affairs Minister, Aloysio Nunes, and Brazilian Ambassador, Paulo Cesar Meira De Vasconcellos, visited the Sorek Desalination Plant

Last week, Ziv Shor, IDE’s VP of projects, had the opportunity to give the Brazilian Foreign Affairs Minister, Aloysio Nunes, and Brazilian Ambassador, HE Paulo Cesar Meira De Vasconcellos, a tour of the Sorek Desalination Plant, the largest desalination plant in the world.

While Brazil has nearly a fifth of the world’s water reserves, the country still suffers from severe water shortages.

Desalination can be a viable option for municipal use as the country’s natural water resources are primarily used for energy generation through hydropower plants and irrigation for agriculture.

Minister Nunes said that he appreciated the opportunity to gain knowledge from Israel’s success story. IDE helped to address Israel’s water shortage crisis and the country now has a water surplus thanks to its three desalination plants: Sorek, Hadera and Ashkelon.
