This use of Camel Waste in Ras Al Khaimah will Surprise you
Taking the country’s waste-to-energy drive to the next level, Ras Al Khaimah has found a wonderful way to convert camel wastes into a source of electricity.
Camel waste is now used to power cement factories in Ras Al Khaimah
Dr Saif Al Ghais, director of the Environment Protection and Development Authority in RAK, explained that camel waste is mixed with other materials to generate electricity.
Camel wastes, trees and solid trash have been converted into power that is now successfully used in operating cement factories. The process has helped reduce the amount of wastes dumped into landfills.
This is in line with the national strategy that aims to preserve natural resources and boost the percentage of recycling and sustainability.
The latest innovation in the emirate is just one part of its green strategy, as experts continue to conduct studies in search of more eco-friendly power sources. The same applies to cooking oil that can hopefully be used in this major industry.
The National Animal has championed the sustainability of the country and gracefully continues to do so.
The department is also cracking down on factories that violate environmental laws. All the cement factories operating in RAK now need to strictly observe a set of rules in their production processes.
They all need to monitor their emissions and use alternative power sources to reduce carbon footprints.
