Waste management event to tackle zero waste
Now in its third edition, Middle East Waste and Recycling will highlight Dubai’s goal of curbing 7,000 tonnes of waste generation daily, as well as achieving Zero Waste by 2030.
Set to run from 23 – 25 May 2016, the third edition of Middle East Waste and Recycling will tackle the latest developments in public waste management.
Hosted once again at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the topic of Dubai’s recently announced Zero Waste by 2030 is expected to be discussed at length at the annual show.
Recent announcements from across the Middle East region include the UAE’s adoption of measures aimed at successfully diverting 75% of waste from landfill by 2021.
Similarly, Oman is working to construct 13 engineered landfill sites, as well as 36 waste transfer stations in different parts of the country.
The topic of sustainable waste management is also expected to become a pressing issue in Saudi Arabia, which is expected to hit 25,000 tonnes of waste generated daily by 2020.
Participating as both a presenter and exhibitor at this year’s event, Andreas Hoeptner, founder and managing partner of H-2-P Project Management, shared: “Waste management is a growing problem not only in the region but also across the rest of the world.
“Under this context, the upcoming expo plays a prominent role in bolstering endeavours to ensure that the entire Middle East will be able to meet its related environmental mission.”
Part of the inaugural Community Management Week, Middle East Waste and Recycling will run in parallel to FM Expo, Elevators & Access Control, Commercial Cleaning & Hygiene, and Outdoor Design & Build 2016.
Organised by dmg events, the waste management exhibition will feature over 150 exhibitors, the platform connecting 9,000 participants and key regional industry players.
