Middle East shows interest in Belarusian peat, sapropel

MINSK, 1 February (BelTA) – The Middle East countries are showing interest in the Belarusian peat and sapropel, head of the geology department of the Natural Resources and Environment Ministry Sergei Mamchik told BelTA.

“We are currently busy with developing peat and sapropel projects. The United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and other countries of the region are showing interest in farming. The corresponding programs have been adopted in the countries. Organo-mineral fertilizers are a necessary source of nutritional agents in the desert. We consider the supplies of sapropel-based fertilizers to these countries,” noted Sergei Mamchik.

Construction raw materials are other extractable resources with a great export potential. However, the exports of road metal, sand and gravel to faraway counties are not also profitable due to the haul distance. “Therefore, the export of building materials demonstrates a bigger interest,” Sergei Mamchik explained.

Belarus also plans to intensify the development of fresh and mineral water deposits.
