  • Description

    President Ben-Zvi and several Ministers attended a ceremony at Eilat, in Southern Israel, Mar 29, that marked the start of the work on a water desalination plant. The plant will convert sea water into drinking water at less than half the cost of any commercial company.

    Alexander Zarchin, the engineer who conceived the cheap process, was also present to see the start of the scheme he has worked on for several years. By the beginning of next year it is hoped that the plant will be able to provide enough drinking from the sea to supply the whole town.

    Representatives of the United States engineering company that is making the equipment stated that within three years factories would be set up in Israel to produce the equipment for sale to other countries
