Construction will soon begin on a NIS 22 million advanced industrial waste treatment facility in Kiryat Gat, to be established by the Beer Tuviya-based firm Ecological Services.
National and local government officials and company representatives gathered in Kiryat Gat's new industrial zone on Tuesday to lay a cornerstone for the facility, which should be operating by 2015.
Ecological Services specializes in providing filtration services, reclamation and drying industrial sludge, according to the company.
The new plant will be spread over 1.2 hectares and will include the waste treatment plant, as well as offices and a visitors’ center built from recycled materials. The Kiryat Gat site was selected due to its accessibility from the south and center, as well as its proximity to industrial clients such as Intel and HP computers, the company said.
