EcoPeace is closely monitoring plans to build a waste to energy incineration plant at Mishor Adumim, near the Good Samaritan Site adjacent to Khan Al Ahmar and the Israeli settlements of Maale Adumim and Kfar Adumim. Not only would this constitute an illegal act to expand settlements, waste to energy projects are associated with tremendous impacts on the environment and public health if located adjacent to residential areas. Additionally, the lack of transparency regarding the planning and approval process of this initiative raises questions and concerns of possible corruption charges, that require a thorough investigation into the process.
