Last week we ran this picture of prime ministers Narendra Modi of India and Benjamin Netanyahu in a jeep on the beach. Some of our astute readers asked: What is all that tubing in the back of the jeep?
So we looked into the matter and discovered that, yes, that is no ordinary jeep.
Meet the Galmobile. It’s a water purification machine. And it’s a jeep.
Invented by the Israeli G.A.L. Water Technologies Ltd. (gal is Hebrew for waves), the Galmobile is designed to provide clean water in the immediate aftermath of a disaster.
It can purify up to 20,000 liters per day of seawater and 80,000 liters per day of brackish or muddy or contaminated river water and bring it to WHO standards.
