Back in January, I posted that the Jerusalem Business Networking Forum (which I’m active in) held in conjunction with several organizations a “Greening of Jerusalem” event. The event featured presentations from Jerusalem municipality members including environmentalist/Deputy Mayor Naomi Tsur and from 10 promising Jerusalem-based cleantech companies. One of the companies, Cequesta, which also presented to the Jerusalem Business Networking Forum (JBNF) last summer, spoke about its wasterwater management technology that it was still developing.
In a piece on Cequesta on ISRAEL21c.org last week, it mentions that Cequesta is now “open for business”. The company, a wastewater treatment solutions provider, has solutions that clean up wastewater from most types of industrial and agricultural operations, ranging from hotels to cowsheds to automotive plants.
According to the article, “Cequesta is now forging ahead in a number of environmentally friendly directions by creating complete units that can, for example, recycle 70 percent of a building’s wastewater.” It has also “developed a water treatement solution for a Toyota plant in America.”
Accompanying the article is this video of Waimann’s presentation that I took on my cell phone in January.
In addition to this event, Waimann also presented Cequesta and discussed cleantech in general last summer during another cleantech-focused event that the Jerusalem Business Networking Forum organized. These videos along with others are located on the Israel Innovation 2.0 YouTube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/IsraelInnovation20
