Restoration is carried out simultaneously with plant operations. Once operations end on a specific section, restoration begins with landfill, levelling, the addition of fertile topsoil and preparations for the land to be used for agriculture. This quarry is an example of how the impact of an active operation can be significantly reduced. This operation is also an example of how different economic activities can coincide simultaneously on the same site, in this case extractive operations and agriculture with a very small impact. Environmental responsibility is a core value of Prebetong Áridos, and the company is committed to the rapid restoration returning them, in this case, to their initial agricultural use with a minimum impact area.
