PEDRA MINING, the only company that produces construction aggregates (crushed stone) in the municipality of Porto Alegre, offers our city the most intelligent way to manage construction waste: RECYCLING. PEDRA ENVIRONMENTAL has emerged as a pioneering venture in the south of the country. Located in the Belém Velho neighborhood in the eastern zone of Porto Alegre, it has a broad concept of sustainability, operating as a construction waste management center, through recycling and choosing the appropriate final destination, balancing the constant demand for mineral aggregates (crushed stone - a product that is essential for social development) with construction waste management.
The benefits for the city include the reuse of waste through a beneficial process that transforms debris into materials that can be used in a variety of construction applications. The recycling process and the use of these recycled materials in new projects is directly linked to spreading awareness to everyone within the production chain, from small renovations to large construction sites. The regulation of standards for correctly disposing waste is of paramount importance. These will prevent dumping in illegal landfills and inappropriate locations.
This company will contribute to transforming Porto Alegre into a model city for construction waste management. It will also meet demands for aggregates (crushed stone) sustainability, for the development of Porto Alegre and the Metropolitan Area.
