The Engineering Projects Department at the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine confirmed that the Al-Ataa’ factory for the production of construction materials works within the approved environmental standards.
Eng. Dia Majid Al-Sa'egh, head of the aforementioned department, said: “The al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine has focused in establishing and implementing its various projects on the implementation of approved health and environmental controls, including this project in which work is mainly based on administrative planning, through the distribution of the plant site in general. And also the internal distribution of production lines. This division comes due to the nature of the project’s work, as it is considered one of the projects in which all means of preserving the environment must be available, as well as the aspect related to the health of its workers.
He added, "The most prominent factor is the choice of the site for the project, as the least densely populated areas are the most appropriate. The al-'Ata site was chosen in the desert region, west of the Karbala governorate, and this area was allocated by the governorate to establish such projects, in order to invest the natural resources in the area, and converting them into useful constructive outputs. "
Al-Sa'egh explained: “We have made sure that the administrative buildings of the factory are far from the production lines, and also the sites for examining materials are within well-studied places, and the main goal of this division is in addition to preserving the health of workers, as it provides great facilities in managing production and work without any interference in the production lines."
He continued: "Another factor that contributes to preserving the environment is the individualization of green spaces within the plant area, which is considered a necessity due to the large number of emissions caused by the production process, and we have allocated (20%) of the total area of the site to be green areas planted with trees. In addition to working as windbreaks and also contributing to softening and purifying the atmosphere. "
It is noteworthy that Al-Ataa’ Factory is considered one of the model and modern laboratories in the Karbala Governorate, and it produces high-quality construction materials that are subject to laboratory tests.
