MASOUTIS: COVER THE EXPENSES FOR THE CLEANING OF THE THERMAL BATH – COOPERATION WITH COLGATE & MEGA

Diamantis Masoutis, with an eye towards sustainable development and with a commitment to environmental protection, in the framework of its annual CSR action plan, undertook to cover the costs for the cleaning of the Thermaikos Gulf in cooperation with Colgate and MEGA, under the auspices of the Ministry of Macedonia and Thrace, for the period 4 September – 6 October 2023.

The company’s main helper in its efforts was the specially designed anti-pollution vessel “ALKIPI” of North Aegean Slops, while a high-speed inflatable boat and a container container truck were also used.

CLEANING & ANTI-POLLUTION WORKS

More specifically, Masoutis undertook 23 cleaning and anti-pollution works, aimed at removing and collecting floating debris and slicks as well as dealing with pollution incidents from multiple substances that pollute the Thermaikos Gulf. The work focused on the coastal front of Thessaloniki, while waste collection followed the route to and from the port of Thessaloniki and extended to the sea area of the Concert Hall.

In one month, 96 m3 of waste was collected from the sea surface and coastal areas, which translates into more than 30 tonnes of waste. This quantity is considered very significant, given the extent of the pollution and the aesthetic deterioration it could cause to the coastal area of the bay. The final recipients of the collected waste were ECO Salonikca, ELDIA and Mavrorachi Landfill.
