Veolia to build waste treatment plant in Dubai

DUBAI, November 21, 2016

Veolia, a global resource management leader, has been awarded a contract by Dubai Municipality (DM) to engineer, procure and provide construction services for setting up a hazardous liquid waste treatment plant.

The agreement is a first of its kind in the UAE, and aims to prepare Dubai for the anticipated increase in the quantity of hazardous liquid waste, as existing industries expand and new ones are set up.

Thierry Froment, chief operating officer for Veolia Water Technologies in the Middle East, said:  “Managing waste is a significant issue today, not just in the UAE, but across the world. Veolia is committed to developing and implementing solutions to manage waste effectively and we are proud of our partnership with Dubai Municipality.”

The plant is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2017 and will be able to treat 200 cu m per shift (three shifts per day) of hazardous liquid waste, including acidic, alkaline and oily waste and wastewater.

“Dubai Municipality has always worked towards ensuring world-class waste management infrastructure. Veolia is a trusted environmental partner in the region and it is our pleasure to work alongside them to act on our shared vision of sustainable waste management in the UAE,” said Abdul Majeed Saifaie, director of the Waste Management Department at Dubai Municipality.

With its team of specialists, proprietary technologies and international knowledge, Veolia is geared to treating hazardous liquid waste which typically has very high and diverse polluting loads.

The plant, designed with various pre-treatment systems each adapted to a specific type of hazardous liquid waste, offers the necessary flexibility required for such waste. –TradeArabia News Service
