Since the establishment of Israel in 1948, the country has worked hard at turning a country with very little resources into a haven rich with innovations and discoveries.
Israeli Green Innovations Worth Seeing
Over the past six decades Israel has found creative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing problems, thus making Israel a global leader in high-tech innovations. From health breakthroughs to technology, agriculture, and the environment, Israel’s innovations are transforming and enriching lives everywhere. Israel today is playing a significant role in some of the most important challenges facing our planet. Vered Haharon wants to share with you some of Israel’s innovations worth seeing.
Hiriya was Israel’s biggest eye-sore, a huge landfill site not far from Tel Aviv where a quarter of Israel’s waste ended up, creating a huge garbage mountain. Now, Hiriya is being transformed into a 2,000-acre model public park in the most complex environmental project in Israel.
While the Hiriya Park won’t be ready until 2020, the tip already houses a recycling education center, where thousands of Israeli school children come to learn about the impact of trash on the environment, and the importance of reducing, recycling and reusing. Needless to say the education center is also open to the public.
Netafim, the company was founded in 1965 when Israeli engineer Simcha Blass noticed a tree growing bigger than its neighbors in the Israeli desert, and found that it was fed by a leaking water pipe. This huge worldwide industry of modern drip irrigation has revolutionized the agricultural industry, operating systems in 112 countries with 13 factories throughout the world and 2,400 employees.
