Further, the video sheds light on the recycling of reclaimed asphalt, crumb rubber produced from tires, demolition and excavation waste, wadi aggregate and steel slag, while also explaining the methods of manufacturing recycled materials.
It stresses Ashghal’s commitment to eco-friendly projects by showcasing the Mobile Unit for Air Quality Control and Air Emission Monitoring, which has been designed to assess air quality within the scope of the authority’s projects and to monitor any emissions in order to reduce them and their negative impact on the environment that may affect the health of workers.
Also, the video shows the Material Research Lab and Environmental Research Lab introduced by Ashghal to implement quality-control measures at the authority’s various infrastructure and building projects.
The wastewater treatment mechanism of Ashghal, along with the the reclamation and rehabilitation project in Al Karaana Lagoon, is also featured in the video.
