- Israeli Tech to Prevent Pipe-Clogging at Hoover Dam
Water purification technology developed by the Israeli firm Atlantium has been chosen for use at Hoover Dam in Arizona to prevent an invasive species of mussel from clogging the water cooling system and interfering with the dam’s electricity production. Atlantium’s non-chemical UV water purification technology will kill off the organisms.
Atlantium is headed by Benjamin Kahn, an Israeli marine biologist who in 2007 was named by Time as one of its “Heroes of the Environment” for working towards preserving the coral reefs in the Red Sea next to Eilat. (Times of Israel)
