EcoWASTE Exhibition and Forum is set to kick off in January 2023 as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week, which runs from 16 to 18 January 202

EcoWASTE, organised with the strategic partnership of the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Company (Tadweer), will be hosted at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC).

The exhibition will explore the GCC’s efforts towards a circular economy, highlighting the role of the emirate of Abu Dhabi in achieving this. It will also be an opportunity for participants to learn about the GCC’s innovative approach to sustainable waste management, and game-changing solutions to address the waste dilemma in the MENA region. The World Bank estimates that the region’s waste dilemma will double to 255 million tonnes a year by 2050 amid ongoing urbanisation across the Arabian Gulf.

EcoWASTE will shed light on circular economy-based revenue streams and investment opportunities for existing businesses and start-ups across multiple sectors. The Forum will host prominent keynotes, case studies and panel discussions that deep dive into disruptive approaches to create new value from waste, technology for waste management, landfill diversion strategies, waste-to-energy studies, the end of single-use plastics and improved waste management techniques.

A leading platform

Ali Al Dhaheri, acting director general of Tadweer said, “EcoWASTE Exhibition and Forum is a platform which unites local, regional and global experts in multiple sectors including, waste management, recycling, reusing, re-manufacturing and waste-to-energy. The exhibition aims to foster knowledge exchange between industry experts on the best practices to manage and reuse waste to achieve sustainable improvements in this sector.”

“As part of the Company’s participation in the exhibition, we look forward to highlighting our role in this industry and showcasing the integrated waste management system of the Emirate. We are also keen on engaging with industry experts at EcoWASTE to share knowledge and best practices in implementing innovative solutions and technologies that will positively impact the Emirate’s future,” Al Dhaheri said.

Knowledge Exchange

At the exhibition, Tadweer will showcase the best practices of its sustainability initiatives, including state-of-the-art hazardous waste treatment, replacing waste bins, launching electronic auctions for selling recyclable waste, and supporting residential recycling and agricultural collection points. The Company will also display products made from recycled demolition and construction waste, in addition to agricultural and animal waste.

Regional focus

During this three-day event, EcoWaste will feature the UAE & GCC Waste Management Forum, a high-level GCC municipality discussion on ways to further the region’s sustainable waste management practices. The Forum also aims to identify opportunities for cooperation and partnerships between regional stakeholders, and enable discussions around the best solutions to face the challenges of the waste management sector.

International Participation

The list of prominent exhibitors in the event includes Italy’s Dulevo International, Denmark’s Eldan Recycling, ATI Industries of France, the US-owned BTS Biogas SRL, Serbia’s Plastik Gogic, and Sharjah-based BEEAH Group,  another one of the UAE’s leading waste management companies. In addition, companies from Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, Germany, Algeria, India, Cyprus and others will be participating in the event.

The EcoWASTE Exhibition & Forum is organised with the strategic partnership of the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Company (Tadweer) during the World Future Energy Summit, which is hosted by Masdar as part of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.
