In the past few years, the coal industry in the West Bank has become a central challenge for the region. The conventional method of producing coal, which includes burning large amounts of wood for over 20 days, severely pollutes the environment and creates a high risk of developing respiratory problems.
Together with international organizations, the Civil Administration has been working to examine and integrate alternative methods of producing coal in cooperation with those working in the West Bank region. Many trials and experiments are being conducted at The Civil Administration Headquarters with the objective of determining the safest, cleanest, most efficient and most environmentally sound method that will hopefully be implemented in the West Bank, while also working to stop the current method of coal production which harms public health and the environment.
