The Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) has opened its organic waste composting unit in the UAE capital. The firm says the centre is part of its plan to encourage both corporate and individual involvement in reducing organic waste.

According to a statement, the unit will help turn organic waste into a useful organic soil, leveraging its immense potential to contribute to the sustainable development of Abu Dhabi. The new facility was opened in the presence of Dr Salem Al Kaabi, director general of Tadweer and senior officials from other relevant departments.

The facility will help transfer the waste management sector from burying waste to utilising waste as a resource, the firm said. It added that this goal will be achieved through eliminating the need for landfills and economically encouraging compost production that could solve the challenges facing organic waste management, and at the same time guarantee ‘self-production’ of fertiliser for local agriculture.

“The organic waste composting unit in Abu Dhabi is aligned with Tadweer’s strategic plan to improve the quality of waste management services in the emirate, through the optimal utilisation of its resources and expertise. This supports the Abu Dhabi Environmental Vision 2030 that aims to ensure a safe, healthy and sustainable future for our society,” said Dr Salem Al Kaabi, director general of Tadweer.

Tadweer said the facility uses a compost machine that converts organic waste materials into biologically stable substances that will significantly reduce soil pollution in the areas used as landfills. The procedure will improve the overall operations of the organic fertiliser unit by effectively managing the conversion of organic waste into compost from collection to segregation, to treatment and storage, and to the final distribution of organic fertiliser to end users, the statement explained.

Al Kaabi concluded, “The management of organic waste is a top priority for Tadweer. Therefore, we work in close collaboration with our partners from the government and private sectors to develop innovative solutions that help reduce organic waste and turn it into a valuable resource for the emirate’s economy.”
