Rinella Garden to become Malta’s first carbon neutral open space

Rinella Garden to become Malta’s first carbon neutral open space
Aug 11 2021 Share

Rinella Garden is set to transform into a completely carbon neutral open space for public use through a €1 million investment. Featuring innovative technologies such as solar paving, smart benches and solar smart bins, the project will respect the island’s environmental landscape with zero emissions produced. Announced by Energy Minister Miriam Dalli and Finance Minister Clyde Caruana, the garden will also protect the cultural and architectural heritage bound with the area.

An ex-military cemetery, the space will feature smart waste cans which will send notifications once filled up and an irrigation system operating solely on solar energy. This system will generate enough energy to balance out the electrical consumption generated by the garden, creating a unique sustainable space. Planned for completion by next year’s first quarter, this garden marks an environmental historic moment for Malta.

Today Messi had a press-conference with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi. Both had interesting things to say. Nasser began the conference with a speech where he stated that today was a historical and crazy day for football and that this transfer is exciting for not only PSG fans, but football fans in general.

As the press conference continued Messi also said “Leaving Barcelona was so hard. But I’m so happy to join Paris Saint-Germain, ambitious club with a top team. They’ve been so fast and serious in the negotiations immediately after Barça statement last Thursday” .  He also had this to say about the prospect of playing with Neymar Jr and Kylian Mbappe “I am very happy. It’s crazy. I’m going to play with the best players in the world, and that’s always good.”

This summer, PSG have arguably had the best transfer window a club has had in the history of the game. This summer, the Parisians have been compared to Real Madrid’s Galacticos project when they signed Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos.

Aug 11 2021 Share

Leading Insurance company GasanMamo Insurance continues to support environmental projects as it donates two diving kits and diving gear for NGO Zibel. With marine debris being a well-documented issue both locally and globally, the team up prioritises initiatives which support the caring for the environment. With an estimated 224,000 metric tons of trash floating on the surface and anther 8.5 million metric tons sinking to the bottom, such initiatives are crucial in pushing for environmental awareness and protection. 

This summer alone, Zibel has collected 3.9 tonnes of waste with the diving clean ups, surfacing regular items such as car tyres and bottles and the occasional peculiar items such as thermos flasks, boat trailers and even false teeth. GasanMamo general manager Mark Mamo expressed his pleasure in collaborating once again with one of Malta’s most energetic environmental NGOs. ‘Their passion for cleaner seas creates a natural fit between our organisations, and the environmental ethos that we strive to create and support both within our organisation and our communities’ he stated.
