About the National Coal Ash Board

The National Coal Ash Board is a state-owned entity established in 1993 by the Energy and Infrastructure Ministry (known today as the Energy and Water Ministry), in cooperation with the Environment (known today as Environmental Protection) and Interior ministries, the Israeli Electric Corporation and the National Coal Supply Corporation, in order to consolidate a state-wide effort to create a solution for coal ash, which is a mineral residue produced during coal burning, and which accumulates in the Coal Power Stations.
