Industrial activity requires energy. There are two types of energy sources: non-renewable and renewable. Energy from non-renewable resources contributes to emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases.
ICL strives to be Israel’s leader in the reduction of emissions. To this end, it has begun switching its manufacturing operations from fuel oil to natural gas, which, although a fossil fuel, is significantly cleaner than other fuels. ICL invests significant efforts to reduce and streamline its use of energy at mining, manufacturing and other sites. Energy-conservation activities are part of a comprehensive approach to reduce the Company’s environmental impact.
Through ICL’s Center of Excellence for the Reduction of Greenhouse Gas Emissions, all ICL companies are involved in the process of identifying more effective and efficient solutions, which are then implemented in all ICL companies.
