The Centre of Waste Management - Abu Dhabi and Masdar have launched a new international exhibition dedicated to waste management and recycling, to be held during Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week next January.

EcoWASTE, hosted by Masdar, Abu Dhabi's renewable energy company, together with the Centre of Waste Management - Abu Dhabi (CWM), and organised by Reed Exhibitions, will address the region's waste disposal challenges to further promote sustainable development and environmental conservation.

EcoWASTE was officially launched yesterday by Majid Al Mansouri, Board Member at the Centre of Waste Management - Abu Dhabi and Chairman, Department of Municipal Affairs (DMA),; Mohamed J. Al Ramahi, Chief Operating Officer of Masdar and Frederic Theux, President of Reed Exhibitions Middle East.

Mohammed Al Bowardi, Chairman of CWM; highlighted the importance of coordinated action in realising sustainable waste management and Abu Dhabi's overarching Vision 2030.

"CWM is mandated to develop and implement an integrated waste management system for Abu Dhabi. At the same time, the issues of waste management and recycling affect the entire Middle East and are global in scale. EcoWASTE will be a valuable opportunity to bring together local knowledge and international expertise to advance innovation and best practice in this field." H.E Dr Sultan Al Jaber, CEO of Masdar said the addition of EcoWASTE to Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week alongside the World Future Energy Summit and International Water Summit underlines the continued emergence of Abu Dhabi as a global platform to promote the wider adoption of sustainable development.

Dr Al Jaber stated that the inclusion of EcoWASTE alongside the World Future Energy Summit recognises that recycling and the conversion of waste materials into power is vital for long-term energy and environmental sustainability. "With its productive output and efficient conversion rate, waste-to-energy is emerging as an attractive clean energy source. EcoWASTE, as a part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, is the ideal platform to showcase the latest global technologies making this sector more efficient." "The UAE government is very supportive of developing a waste-to-energy strategy as a key green growth technology and recognises that these technologies have the ability to provide a renewable source of energy as well as minimise its landfill challenges. The government is conducting a federal-level review of waste-to-energy technology and policy which will guide the sector into the future," said Dr Al Jaber.

"EcoWASTE will offer a number of business opportunities across the entire solid waste management services sector, introducing new projects, showcasing the latest technologies and sharing knowledge and expertise from both the public and private sector," said Frederic Theux, President of Reed Exhibitions Middle East.

"Co-locating EcoWASTE with the World Future Energy Summit and the International Water Summit in Abu Dhabi provides the most comprehensive exhibition platform yet from which to address sustainable development issues, by effectively integrating the critical need to reduce the environment impact of waste with the importance of managing water resources and the production and consumption of energy more responsibly." Theux said: "Waste management and recycling are rapidly emerging industries and EcoWASTE2014 will host a wide range of specialists offering solutions tailored to the needs of the MENA region, including experts in industrial cleaning, refuse collection, composting, site decontamination, and air pollution monitoring and control." EcoWASTE2014 will be held from January 20-22, 2014 at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
