The Environmental Protection Ministry recently awarded a tender to examine alternatives to storing large quantities of ammonia in Haifa bay.

Although a public committee found that the ammonia storage facility was sufficiently guarded in the event of an attack, Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) nevertheless ordered the tender because of lingering safety issues. Ammonia is a crucial ingredient in a variety of products, and most of it is stored at the Haifa port.
