  • Since 2009, I am the head of R&D at Toxsorb Ltd.Focusing my resarch in the applied water science,Developing novel adsorptive media for water treatment.
    Our adsorptive mdia is base on the modification ofactivated carbon to remove heavy metals, perchlorate and phosphate from water.The technology we have developed is already in the market, used for drinking water, mining industry wastewater and the galvanic industry wasteewater, at Israel, Italy, France and the US.
