The United Basalt Product (UBP) Limited, which boasts more than 58 years of experience in the construction industry, is planning to diversify its activities, export its goods in the region and go green.
According to the group director, Jean-Michel Giraud, the society has invested in new equipment to make their system more eco-friendly.
UBP is going to re-engineer its stone-crushing activities at Geoffrey Road. What’s new is that the production units will contain all the dust generated by these activities inside metal buildings.
Moreover, it will be possible to spray water at very specific places. This way they can fight against dust, which can be a major source of pollution.
UBP has benefited from the expertise of a French firm, Capenvironnement, for the implementation of this project. UBP group is continuing its expansion plans and foraying in Sri Lanka.
“Sri Lanka has been undergoing an economic boom ever since civil war ended in 2009,” added the director of UBP.
UBP will start rock sand production for cement and plastering work around the third week of June. The emphasis is on respecting the environment, even in activities conducted outside Mauritius. “UBP is one of the first societies to stop the use of coral sand, to stop noise pollution,” said Giraud.
