Chinese contruction company China Wu Yi is trying out a new method of containing the dust using a mist caan truck, the first of its kind in Kenya. The truck converts water into mist and sprays it into the air, which then returns to the ground like rain. The contractor says this is a more efficient way of conserving the environment, because unlike the normal trucks that use hose pipes, the mist caan needs very little water, and barely disturbs the soil. The trucks will be used on the 16 billion shilling shilling project of rehabilitating the Westlands - James Gichuru Road, as well as in the expansion of the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway into a 12-lane road.
