RAK sets new norms for quarries

The Environmental Protection and Development Authority (EPDA) recommended yesterday that real estate developers should deal only with rock quarries and crushers that implement the environmental requirements and stick to the Federal Law No 24 for the year 1999 and the emirate's relative regulations. Dr Saif M. Al Ghais, Executive Director of the EPDA, said it is unfair to equate crushers who spend millions on environmental issues with others which do not implement such measures. In an interview , Al Ghais announced that the EPDA has just set up an experimental 'Wheel Washing' system where the wheels of heavy vehicles are carefully washed before they get to the streets.
