National Coal Ash Board

From Global Energy Monitor

The National Coal Ash Board of Israel states on its website that it "was established in 1993 with the objective of coordinating the effort at a national level to solve the problem of ash accumulation at the power plants, chose to deal with the problem by advancing the use of coal ash as a resource having economic value, in various sectors, as is done in most of the developed countries in the world."[1]

The board states that ash originates from the existing coal-fired Orot Rabin power station in Hadera, and the Rutenberg power station in Ashkelon.


The National Coal Ash Board is a signatory to the charter of the Worldwide Coal Combustion Products Network which was formed in 1999 to "promote, coordinate and inform the public, industry and governmental entities about the beneficial environmental, technical and commercial uses of coal combustion products (CCPs).[2]
