    Fusing environmental responsibilities with sustainability in Qatar

    An opportunity to work on an environment-related project in Qatar was a great opportunity for RSK to fuse its guiding philosophies of environmental responsibility and sustainability with a project for Parsons International monitoring air quality and examining marine conditions at a waste facility in Qatar.

    Regional RSK staff developed an environmental impact assessment (EIA) for a MARPOL waste management compliant facility in Ras Laffan Industrial City, an industrial hub 80 km north of Doha. Our EIA was developed to support the waste facility that would receive and treat waste oil from ships calling at three Qatari ports. Included in the EIA were baseline surveys for
    air quality monitored by automatic methods at six locations by RLIC’s environment department
    rapid assessment of the conditions in the marine environment and collection of in-situ data and sediment/marine water sample collection for laboratory analysis.

    As part of the EIA, we undertook fugitive emissions air modelling and marine dispersion modelling. We were also in charge of preparing port waste management plans for Ras Laffan, Al Khor and Ruwais ports.
