Natural barrier reduced visual impact

With the target of reducing the visual impact of the quarry, Filstone promoted the rehabilitation of the landscape around its facilities in Casal Farto, by reinstating the natural ecosystem with native vegetation and various tree species, such as olive trees, cypresses, holm-oaks and oak trees, as well as various shrub species such as rosemary, myrtle or dry meadow. The replanting of vegetation will allow for greater dust control and will significantly reduce noise and the visual impact of works being carried out.
