TITAN Bulgaria Organizes Quarry Rehabilitation Initiative

31.10.2013

In October, TITAN Bulgaria organized a quarry rehabilitation event for students from the Golden River Environmental Club at Sergey Rumyantsev Vocational High School of Agriculture (VHSA) in Lukovit, Bulgaria, as part of TITAN Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility Policy.

The students planted 153 common ash saplings in a section of the Zlatna Panega quarry that had been planned for rehabilitation. The young trees will be watered regularly to ensure their proper growth and development.

The saplings were cultivated at TITAN Bulgaria’s tree nursery which is located at our cement plant in Zlatna Panega. They were grown from seeds collected two years before on a seed collection day organized by TITAN Bulgaria. The aim of the seed collection was to recover the original vegetation in local forests and form a sustainable ecosystem with the help of the younger generation.

In addition to joining the quarry rehabilitation event, the students attended a lecture on the impacts of open burning of used tires on local communities. The lecture was hosted by TITAN Bulgaria and expounded on the Zlatna Panega River Adoption project and the Tree of Ideas project which will be launched at Sergey Rumyantsev VHSA very soon.
