Jordan’s Ministry of Environment Accompanies Palestinian Environment Quality Authority to Visit Lafarge Jordan Cement’s Fuheis plant



In recognition of Its adherence to top-notch environmental, health and safety standards


Lafarge Jordan Cement welcomed a delegation of 15 members from the Palestinian Environment Quality Authority to its Fuheis plant. The visit, organized by Jordan's Ministry of Environment (MoE), took place on 17th April, 2012.



The visit to Lafarge Jordan Cement's Fuheis plant is one of many visits scheduled by Jordan's Ministry of Environment for the Palestinian Environment Quality Authority to a number of selected manufacturing companies in Jordan. These visitations aim to shed light on Jordanian experience in the field of inspection and environmental control and to exchange expertise between Jordan and Palestine. 


The delegation comprised of MoE's Director of Inspection and Enforcement Eng. Adnan Zawahreh, MoE's Director of Monitoring and Climate Change Eng.Hussein Badarin, as well as Fuheis and Mahes Municipalities' Environment Director Eng. Haidar Al-Rababa'a.


Eng. Fadi Mada'een and Eng. Nidal Mitani conducted a presentation on health and safety procedures and standards, and discussed different types of filters, particularly emission measurement systems. These systems allow both the Company and the Ministry of Environment to monitor and control dust emissions by electronically linking the Fuheis plant's control room, which contains the dust emission controls, to the Ministry, allowing for real-time and around-the-clock monitoring. The visit was concluded with a tour of Lafarge Jordan Cement's Fuheis plant.


 "Lafarge Jordan Cement is a model example of a company that adheres to health, safety and environmental standards, and this is why we have chosen it as a first stop for the Palestinian Environment Quality Authority. We are confident that the delegates from the Authority have witnessed first-hand Lafarge Jordan Cement's sense of responsibility and genuine interest in continuously supporting sustainable socio-environmental development in the Kingdom," stated Eng. Zawahreh.
