The Israeli booth at the event drew the attention of some of Russia’s most prominent players, including representatives from the Moscow and St. Petersburg's water authorities and the heads of Russia’s largest private water utility company Rosvodokanal.

 

The booth was organized by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, Israel’s Economic Mission in Moscow, the Israeli Export Institute and Israel NewTech.

Aqwise, which develops innovative wastewater solutions for the industrial and municipal markets, was able to strike a deal with a local Russian supplier.

 

Aqwise CEO Elad Frankel said that, "The wastewater treatment market in Russia is growing quickly, and the regulation in this area is becoming more and more demanding, forcing municipalities and industrial plants to meet strict international standards. Aqwise’s solutions are proving themselves to be economically viable for a number of sectors and for a variety of client needs."

 

Oded Distel, head of Israel NewTech, added that, "Despite the fact that Russia is a nation with a lot of water, the country is dealing with complex environmental challenges in water systems' management and urban and industrial wastewater.

 

"Israeli companies offer a variety of solutions for the challenges facing Russian water utilities."

 

Eduard Shteinbuk, head of the Israeli Trade and Economic Mission to Moscow said that the Russian market holds great potential for Israeli water-tech companies: "The Russian water sector is going through a modernization process that includes significant involvement of government funds both on federal and on regional levels.

 

"Israeli companies are able to offer relevant solutions for Russia’s needs, and this creates real opportunities for cooperation."
