An Israeli plumbing and drainage firm based in an Upper Galilee kibbutz has signed contracts in six European countries to install its environmentally friendly sewage and wastewater pipes, the firm announced this week.
The company, Huliot of Kibbutz Sde Nehemia, has begun marketing a type of pipe that is a first for the European sewage industry – an acoustic insulated pipe made from a unique plastic compound that does not pollute the environment, according to the firm. Officially recognized as an environmentally friendly product, the pipes recently received a green stamp of approval from the Israel Standards Institute.

The pipes operate particularly quietly and are meant to replace lead pipes in the ground that lack insulation, the company explained.
In addition to signing the six contracts in Europe, Huliot is currently holding discussions with a number of large construction companies in Israel seeking to purchase the equipment as part green construction projects, the company said.
Israeli building firms have become increasingly eager to make use of such products in their projects “in order to get extra coveted points to be defined as ‘green buildings,’” explained Ariel Apeloig, vice president for marketing at Huliot.
