Hebrew University and Plant-Ditech

A multi-year contract was signed between ICL and The Hebrew University to conduct experiments on an advanced sensor-based research platform using the novel system Plantarray by Plant-Ditech. New ICL products will be tested on Plantarray in the iCORE incubator and as a result of the testing the most effective materials will be further developed and will be selected for commercialization

Israel Innovation Authority and The Technion

ICL is proud to announce a partnership with the Israel Innovation Authority, to support “Meimad” - an R&D project led by Nobel Laureate Dr. Dan Shechtman of the Israeli Institute of Metals at theTechnion. This R&D initiative seeks to develop new magnesium alloy products and processes, including magnesium 3D printing.

Hebrew University of Jerusalem

ICL innovation started a project with professors of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem aiming at developing phosphorus fertilizers with high soil mobility to overcome the challenge of phosphorus fixation and achieve improved crops with higher yields.  These will hopefully result in enhanced efficiency P-fertilizers that ICL's Crop Nutrition business will bring to market.
