Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre reopens construction waste recycling in Al Dhafra

Reopening aligns with Abu Dhabi’s vision of diverting 75% of its waste away from landfills

The Ghayathi Crusher in the Al Dhafra region has been reopened according to the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre (Tadweer). The move is said to be part of the centre’s strategic plan to promote environmental sustainability and develop an integrated waste management system in Abu Dhabi.

As per a statement from Tadweer, the facility aims to cut construction and demolition (C&D) waste in the emirate and can handle 2,000 tonnes of C&D waste per day (30,000 tonnes per month). The crusher can produce high-quality aggregate for the construction of vital infrastructure projects such as roads, to contribute to the sustainable development of Al Dhafra region.

In diverting significant amount of C&D waste away from landfills and turning it into useful materials, the crusher helps lower greenhouse gas emission and contributes to the creation of green jobs in the region, the statement explained.

“Tadweer’s move to reopen Ghayathi crusher is aligned with its continued efforts to fulfill Abu Dhabi’s vision of diverting 75% of its waste away from landfills. The crushers run by Tadweer play an important role in achieving this target through recycling huge quantities of C&D waste and turning them into useful materials to use in vital projects in Al Dhafra region and across the country,” said Dr Salem Al Kaabi, director-general at Tadweer.

The statement noted that the facility drives significant saving for the local economy and articulates Tadweer’s strategy of meeting the demand for recycled aggregates from the Emirate’s crushers and use them in vital projects in collaboration with other government entities and private sector partners.

He added, “All operations at the Ghayathi crusher comply with the highest international standards and practices, and the materials generated by the facility will play a critical role in driving construction and infrastructure development in the region.”
