At the meeting, a project for the completely new plant for processing quartz-kaolin raw material was presented by Mr. Lindemann-Berk, which is to be built in Dulovo town and whose value is expected to exceed 50 million euros. The future plant of KAOLIN EAD will be the most modern and completely environmentally friendly enterprise of this type in Europe, and this plant will be a model for the entire mining industry in Bulgaria.
