Tadweer unveils waste management plan for Abu Dhabi

posted on 20/11/2015: 2363 views



The Abu Dhabi Centre of Waste Management, Tadweer, has unveiled the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Master Plan 2040 which addresses the UAE's waste reduction target of 85 percent by 2021 According to a report published by the Gulf News daily yesterday, the proposed master plan was part of a brainstorming workshop attended by Tadweer's strategic partners in environment and waste management, who are expected to contribute directly to the implementation of this project. The plan has been put together in response to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi's development, growing population and expected growth, which have already had a serious impact on waste generation.

According to figures, around 12 million tonnes of waste was produced by the Emirate of Abu Dhabi in 2013. Other statistics showed that the emirate's population doubled in the last ten years, which has also doubled the amount of waste produced. Over the next 25 years, the population is expected to double again, and unless action is taken now, the waste output is also likely to double.

"We have to take action today, not tomorrow, not next month," said Eisa Saif Al Qubaisi, General Manager, Tadweer.

The master plan identified the challenges ahead, such as collection issues due to traffic and short working windows, misuse of Tadweer's collection system, transportation issues of delays in accessing facilities due to restrictions on truck movements, and treatment facilities with insufficient capacity and low or no technology, to name a few. It suggested possible solutions at industrial and societal levels, and the requirement for new regulations.

"This is the first of many workshops," said Al Qubaisi, urging stakeholders to cooperate and collaborate with his team in order to reach their goals. "We are not going to achieve this without you," he said. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/general/1395288215725.html
