The Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) has signed four operational contracts with a total value of Dhs235m.

Tadweer signed a three-year contract with the Green Mountains Environment and Transport Service Establishment (GMET) for the management, operation, maintenance, monitoring, and control of the controlled waste landfills in the city of Al Ain and Al Dhafra region. It will receive, sort, and bury municipal, commercial, and industrial solid waste in accordance with the set environmental standards.

Tadweer also inked a three-year contract with Train Environmental Services for the management, operation, maintenance, monitoring, and control of the Hameem landfill for controlled waste, and the transfer station for municipal solid waste and commercial and industrial waste. It will receive solid waste and sort it at designated stations, before disposing of non-recyclable waste safely.

Also, Tadweer signed new operational contracts for pest control services in the northern region of Al Ain city with Alphamed Abu Dhabi and Eagle Environmental Services and Pest Control. These contracts will service 74 areas with about 168 vehicles and 902 pieces of equipment. Its services include field surveys, insect investigation, and treatment all year long.

In related developments, the eighth edition of EcoWASTE 2022, held at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week in partnership Tadweer, concluded its three-day activities on Wednesday.

The topics discussed via speeches, panel discussion and session included landfill reduction strategies, recycling electronic waste, converting organic waste into gas and biofuels and building materials and hydrogen and fuel, the use of agricultural waste in the circular economy, and accelerating the implementation of waste-to-energy plans at a regional level.

“Converting waste to energy is one of several other solutions for waste management. The solution needs to be environmental, commercial and social. On a commercial level, we need to start with other cheaper options like MRF-RDF (Material Recovery Facilities- Refuse Derived Fuel), before converting waste to energy,” said Dr. Salem Al Kaabi, director general of Tadweer.

“In the UAE, the federal government and the emirate of Abu Dhabi are placing a major focus on the diversion of waste from landfill, which is key for diagnosing the waste management system. Several factors affect the diversion of waste from landfill, including government policies, projects, as well as public awareness. In order to minimise landfill waste, we need to start with transitioning to a circular economy, which starts with changing the behaviour of the consumer and the producer.”
