2006 Trafigura Dumps Toxic Waste on Ivory Coast
In 2006, the Dutch oil and shipping company Trafigura, chartered a ship called the Probo Koala, to offload toxic waste at numerous sites around the city of Abijan, Ivory Coast. Trafigura was seeking to avoid paying a £1,000 per cubic meter disposal charge in Amsterdam.
