Eng. Ali Al Dhaheri, chief executive officer of the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Company (Tadweer), said: “EcoWaste provides a platform for enhancing partnerships and expanding cooperation among local and global companies, to deal with challenges in the waste management sector. The event brings together leading experts and specialists in the field to learn about the latest developments and advanced technologies in the waste management sector. It is also an opportunity to explore radical solutions, exchange expertise and knowledge, and improve strategies to achieve integrated and sustainable waste management.”

“Overcoming the current challenges of waste management is our top priority. We must strengthen our efforts to find innovative solutions to process waste and reduce the pollution resulting from it, in order to transform waste from an economic burden into a national resource. We, at Tadweer, are working to enhance our contribution to the field by carrying out projects and initiatives that aim to develop the Emirate’s waste management system. This comes in line with the UAE’s vision to adopt a circular economy, achieve a prosperous and sustainable future and reaffirm its global position as leader in this sector,” he added.

The event will include keynote speeches, case studies, and panels, which will explore innovative and effective approaches to waste management, the role of governance to ensure a thriving circular economy, the future of waste operations, minimizing electronic waste through recycling, waste management, the circular economy and COP ambitions, in addition to other topics.
