Ilan’s latest success story: Drinking water from air

Israeli researchers develop technology producing water from airWater for Everyone – Even OFF Grid

The new Israeli system involves two cyclic stages. First, it absorbs moisture from the air using a highly concentrated saline solution. Then, it separates the moisture from the desiccant and condenses the vapor under sub-atmospheric pressure conditions.
Solar Energy to the Rescue It also has the advantage of being solar-powered. “Besides being energy efficient, the new technology offers an additional advantage: as part of the process the water undergoes pollutant removal processes,” Prof. Broday said. “Our technology turns water into a commodity produceable anywhere in the world. The prototype we have built demonstrates that the system works as expected.”

Ilan Katz brings over 20 years of experience in environmental engineering and technological development in the fields of waste, sewage and water. His experience is a mix of engineering, R&D and management in processes and projects. The focus is all environmental issues for industry, government ministries and academia.

Today, Ilan’s consulting and development services are directed at industry in the fields of waste recycling technology, sewage treatment, and water purification and harvesting.


Ilan holds a Master’s Degree in Bio-technology in the field of water treatment, a BA in biology and an MBA, all from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology.


Ilan was one of the environmental engineers at the Kishon River Authority, Haifa, Israel – a comprehensive river cleanup project. His work included supervision of industrial effluent discharge, monitoring water quality & biodiversity and implementing quality standards for the Kishon River.

For 5 years, he was Director of the Membrane Treatment Laboratory, Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Technion – acquiring comprehensive knowhow and experience in water and wastewater treatment methods for biological, chemical and physical processes.

At Water-Arc, Ilan developed and implemented “constructed wetlands” for grey water recycling at private homes.

He designed and constructed a sewage desalination plant at the Nir Etzion purification plant, also in the Haifa area.

Ilan has consulted for the Chief Scientist at Israel’s Ministry of Industry, Trade and Labor, Health Ministry, Agricultural Ministry and with academic researchers.

As the CTO at Arrow Ecology, Ilan gained strong industrial experience dealing with anaerobic treatment of organic matter and waste separation. This is a unique technology that treats Municipal Solid Waste (MSW). In his role as CTO, the entire treatment system was re-designed. The facility was rebuilt for all recycling separation requirements and treatment systems, including piping and pumping.  Ilan performed all the planning stages. He managed and supervised the anaerobic installation, running the equipment, and operating the plant on a daily basis.

Ilan has published 20 scientific articles in international journals and in another 20 publications in Israel.
