The preservation of air quality in production sites is a central goal of ICL’s environmental policy.
Human activity, such as energy generation, industrial activity, agricultural activity and transportation are responsible for the majority of the pollution in the air.
ICL has prepared a comprehensive master plan to control fugitive emissions in all of its sites, with the approval of – and in coordination with – Israel’s Ministry of Environmental Protection. ICL companies in Israel comply with the Ministry’s requirements and guidelines for fugitive emissions.
ICL has made preparations to comply with the Clean Air Law, which came into effect in January 1, 2011, in all of its production sites, achieving a 75% reduction in NOx emissions, 26% reduction in PM emissions and 38% reduction in SOx emissions since 2008.
