Afikey Maim Reclamation Plant (Israel)


IDE designed, built, and proudly operates the Afikey Maim Contaminated surface water plant – a first-of-its-kind brackish/surface water reverse osmosis (BWRO) plant in Israel.

The Afikey Maim Facility treats the southern Jordan River brackish/surface water, so the recently polluted river water can again be a valuable resource for agriculture and industrial use in the region. Supported by IDE’s advanced process, the facility will provide approximately 280 m3/h (2,000,000 m3 per year) of high-quality water to Israel’s Gilboa area, in addition to about 70 m3/h of brine for fish farming ponds.
