Professor Harvey Winter, Professor Emeritus at Fairleigh Dickinson Univerisity, Teaneck, will speak about desalination in Israel and the Middle East. With seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination now accounting for more than 50% of Israel's water needs, reliance on the extraction of water from the Jordan River is not longer a need for Israel and helps sustain water needs in the West Bak region and Jordan. Professor Winters recieved his Ph.D. from Columbia University and is currently a Research Associate Scientist at KAUST in Saudi Arabia and a Visiting Professor at Nanyang Technical University in Singapore.
