Israel Current 2012

A Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) is a database or inventory of pollutants released to air, water, and soil by factories, and/or transferred off-site for treatment or disposal.
Israel’s PRTR system was established under the 2012 Environmental Protection Law. The guidelines for the system were set in the Kiev Protocol on Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers, which Israel acceded in January 2013.
