Israeli Ministry offers NIS 70M boost for green powerSep. 9, 2012
The Environmental Protection Ministry announced it will award NIS 70 million (roughly $18 million) in grants to entrepreneurs who will pursue the eco-friendly production of electricity from organic waste.
The ministry has set a three-year deadline for the facilities to become operational, adding they would greatly encourage the separation of household waste among the public.
The facilities are meant to be based on anaerobic waste digestion methods, which sees bacteria break down organic waste. The method produces gas, which in turn is used to produce electricity.
The ministry has also put in place a plan to help cities that wish to boost their household waste recycling activities.
