Two Israeli companies have agreed to start water technology pilot projects in Michigan, says Lt. Gov. John D. Cherry Jr.
Cherry recently returned from a week-long overseas trade mission to the Middle East, making stops in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Dubai, and bringing back news of the deals.
The two pilot projects, one by EPC Ltd. Onsite Wastewater Solutions, and another by EMEFCY, involve innovative uses of wastewater.
Katie Carey, a Cherry spokeswoman, said the EPC project will occur somewhere in Oakland County. The location of the EMEFCY project is still up in the air, but the Thumb is a possibility, Carey said.
They deal a lot with the CAFOs, and there are some of those in the Thumb,” Carey said. “It’s a possibility. We’re definitely looking at the entire state.”
