Citizens for the Environment v. Elcon Recycling Center (2003)

excess morbidity caused by pollutants emission

Application to certify a class action on behalf of people who spent more than two years in the Haifa district, and who were diagnosed with lung cancer or Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The application was filed in July 2019 by Citizens for the Environment organization, against dozens of factories and other entities who emit pollutants known as causing these diseases.


According to the application, although information about the excessive air pollution in the Haifa district has been available for dozens of years, the respondents continued to impose the damage of pollution on the public, breached environmental standards and emission permits, did not properly monitor their activity, and did not take into account their proximity to one another and to residential areas. The respondents` behavior caused excess morbidity among class members.


In February 2021, in a precedential decision, the court held that it is possible to file a class action seeking compensation for morbidity which was caused by mass exposure to pollution. The court dismissed five motions to dismiss the application to certify the class action.


We represent the applicants, together with Dr. (Geography) Eran Tzin and Amnon Keren of the Tel Aviv University Environmental Justice Law Clinic.


Status: Application to certify the class action is pending, Decision in Motions to Dismiss.
