Tadweer signs Abu Dhabi waste management contracts

ABU DHABI, January 16, 2018

The Centre of Waste Management in Abu Dhabi (Tadweer) has signed five new contracts, worth Dh165 million ($45 million) for waste management investment projects in the emirate with leading firms in the waste sector, said a report.

The contracts were announced at the CWM-Tadweer booth at the ongoing EcoWaste Exhibition being held as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, reported state news agency Wam.

Falah Al Ahbabi, the chairman of CWM-Tadweer, said these new projects are in line with Abu Dhabi government's masterplan related to sustainability and environmental conservation.

"The new projects will greatly contribute to sustainable waste management and environmental protection by treatment of hazardous waste, reducing landfill waste and reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It will enable CWM-Tadweer to fulfil its commitment of ensuring a safe and sustainable future for upcoming generations," he noted.

CWM-Tadweer signed a contract with Green Energy Solutions and Sustainability for the first landfill gas-to-energy investment project in the Middle East at Al Dhafra landfill, said the report.

The project will prevent the release of GHG from landfills into the atmosphere. It is expected to be commissioned to produce about 5 MW of power by September and will be registered with the Clean Development Mechanism of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change for carbon credit, it stated.

CWM-Tadweer also awarded two new contracts to Ramky and BRS Ventures Joint Venture for medical and hazardous waste incineration projects in Abu Dhabi, and a contract to CleanCo in Al Ain.

Dr BR Shetty, the chairman of BRS Ventures, said: "Having spent more than 40 years in Abu Dhabi, I am honoured to receive this opportunity from CWM that allows me to contribute to the Abu Dhabi environment, along with my long-term associate Ramky."

Allan Ayodhya Ramireddy, the chairman of Ramky Group, said, "We are committed to a long-term association with CWM, along with our partners, BRS Ventures, as we contribute to the sustainable development of UAE and the region."

The facilities in Abu Dhabi will be able to treat about 15,000 tonnes per annum, while the Al Ain facility will treat some 3,000 tonnes per annum. Both projects will be operational by the end of 2018.
