Masdar to set up green recycling facility in Capital

posted on 14/01/2013: 2986 views

A new recycling facility will be set up by Abu Dhabi's Centre of Waste Management, with environmental benefits expected across the board.

The Materials Recovery Facility, set up by UAE renewable energy company Masdar, will collect recyclable waste from the city and its neighbouring areas.

The Centre of Waste Management (CWM) says the facility will be the most energy efficient recycling plant in the UAE, while it says the centre will significantly lower carbon dioxide emissions and the fuel consumption of CWM's fleet of cars - though neither Masdar or CWM would give further information on this, the reduction in fuel consumption will presumably come from a reduction in waste transportation.

The news of the facility came during an agreement signed yesterday between Masdar and CWM. Masdar City alone is expecting to produce 22,000 tonnes of waste a year, but its target is to recycle half of it.

"We, at the Centre of Waste Management, are glad to join hands with Masdar, the leading initiative in the fields of renewable energy and clean technology worldwide. The comprehensive agreement will lay the foundation for fruitful developments that support the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030,” said CWM general manager Mohamed Rashed Al Hameli.

The agreement also stipulates that Masdar will host an Eco Waste Exhibition during next year's Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, focusing on environmental-friendly waste management. CWM will also collaborate with the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology on research and development and offer student scholarship programmes to help develop the sector. "Masdar's collaboration with the Centre of Waste Management illustrates our goal of advancing sustainable technologies to drive economic growth through human capacity building and commercially driven ventures,” mentioned Sultan Al Jaber, CEO of Masdar. – Khaleej Times
