Dor Chemicals Accused of Leaking Dangerous Chemicals

Israel’s Ministry of Environment filed charges against the Dor Chemical Corporation and two of its managers for having leaked dangerous MTBE chemicals into the ground near a Haifa beach for over six months between January and July of 2012.

During that time, the chemicals spilled into the Kiryat Yam beach area, and despite repeated requests that the leak by taken care of, the pollution continued. The corporation is slated to stand trial next month (June).
