The 2nd edition of ECOWaste, a key platform dedicated to showcasing next generation waste management and recycling solutions, kicked off yesterday at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre as part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW).

The four-day event offers an ideal platform for networking, sharing knowledge and best practices and launching new projects and technologies in integrated waste management sector. It has drawn nearly 50 local and international companies along with 2,000 buyers and specialists in waste management and recycling.

Eisa Saif Al Qubaisi, General Manager, Tadweer, said: "Tadweer's engagement with the second edition of ECOWaste as a strategic partner underscores our commitment to strengthening the leading status of Abu Dhabi as a pioneer in sustainable waste management. Our participation is aligned with our ongoing efforts to continuously enhance the organisational performance of Tadweer through exploring the latest technologies and best practices in integrated waste management to create a safer, cleaner and sustainable future for next generations, while finding efficient and economically viable solutions for our evolving waste management needs." The exhibition includes a meeting of GCC municipalities on 20 January to discuss integrated waste management, integrated pest control management, as well as production and joint marketing of recycled products throughout the GCC. The meeting will be headlined by representatives from Be'ah – Oman, Riyadh Municipality - Saudi Arabia, Greater Amman Municipality - Jordan, Eastern Region Municipality - Saudi Arabia, Makkah Municipality - Saudi Arabia, Manama Municipality - Bahrain and Doha Municipality - Qatar.

Tadweer has also set up an awareness pavilion to educate visitors about its key objectives and activities. In addition, Tadweer's environment guides are conducting workshops for children to highlight the importance of waste reduction, reuse and recycle, public hygiene, environmental safety and using black and green waste bins meant for waste segregation. Experts are on hand to outline optimal waste and natural resource utilisation methods to promote waste reduction at source.

Another highlight of ECOWaste this year is the Buyers Programme, which hosts leading investors in waste management sector from different countries, including Partnership Technical Bureau (PTB) Kuwait, Be'ah - Oman, Dubai Municipality, Al Ain City Municipality (AACM) and Tadweer (Centre of Waste Management - Abu Dhabi).
