Tadweer reopens Ghayathi Crusher in Al Dhafra region

Plant 2 edittedAbu Dhabi Waste Management Centre (Tadweer) has announced the reopening of Ghayathi Crusher in Al Dhafra region as part of the centre’s strategic plan to promote environmental sustainability and develop an integrated waste management system in Abu Dhabi

Aimed to lower construction and demolition (C&D) waste in the emirate, the facility can handle 2,000 tonnes of C&D waste per day, or 30,000 tonnes per month.

Incorporating the latest standards in C&D waste management, 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 a 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 recycling process at Ghayathi crusher starts with the careful examination of C&D waste to ensure that it meets the quality requirements and is free from non-recyclable materials. The waste is then measured and manually segregated from other recyclable materials such as plastic and wood, and passed through air pumps to get rid of any impurities. After that, C&D is transferred to the main crusher to extract the recycled aggregate in the required sizes.

Helping make a significant saving for the local economy, Ghayathi crusher articulates Tadweer’s strategy of meeting the demand for recycled aggravates from the emirate’s crushers and use them in vital projects in collaboration with other government entities and private sector partners.

Dr Salem Al Kaabi, director-general of Tadweer, said, “Tadweer’s move to reopen Ghayathi crusher is aligned with its continued efforts to fulfil 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. Marking a key milestone in Tadweer’s efforts to reduce C&D waste, the project translates into a positive impact on our environment and benefits local economy by reducing costs related to construction materials.”

“The Ghayathi crusher will significantly contribute to the development of an integrated waste management system in the emirate, offering environmentally-friendly solutions to our construction-based industries. Furthermore, the project goes a long way in preserving our natural resources, protecting the environment, and minimising pollution associated with C&D wastes.

“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.

“Through promoting eco-friendly business activities and innovative programmes, Tadweer seeks to protect public health, preserve the environment, reduce pollution and support the sustainable development agenda pursued by the Emirate as part of its Abu Dhabi Environment Vision 2030, making the Emirate a successful model for sustainable development.”
