Market Overview

The UAE waste management Industry is eagerly aiming to reduce the adverse per capita environmental impact by the effective waste management of the various industrial wastes generated in the country. As the country is shifting focus toward non-oil sector to reduce the over dependency on the oil trade, it is increasing the operations in the industries, like heavy and light manufacturing, refineries, chemical plants, power plants, and mineral extraction and processing, which generate huge amounts of waste.

Abu Dhabi is the largest emirate in the United Arab Emirates, with the highest share of industrial activities in the country. It also generates large amount of industrial wastes, and thus demands eco-friendly techniques to treat wastes both hazardous and non-hazardous. Tadweer – the center for waste management plays a pivotal role in developing sustainable and integrated programs to render effective waste management in the country. It started off in 2008 and since then achieved substantial growth, delivering safe and effective waste management. In 2017, the United Arab Emirates collected about 39.188 million metric ton wastes. 90% of the total waste collected was accumulated from Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah, while Abu Dhabi alone had contributed a share of 25%. In Hazardous waste, Abu Dhabi had a share of 53.4%, while in non-hazardous waste, Dubai had the maximum share of 58.9%.

Scope of the Report

The market has been studied based on the hazardous and non-hazardous wastes generated by the different industries. This report also highlights the operational specialization of the key waste management companies in the country to understand the business strategies and the upcoming technologies, which are used for the effective treatment of the numerous wastes generated by the various industries.

Key Market Trends

Development of Innovative Technologies and Advanced Waste Collection Solutions

One of the key technological innovations launched in the region includes the creation of a new waste database by the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment. The bilingual system compiles and analyzes data regarding the waste generated across the country, and keeps track of the hazardous and the non-hazardous waste levels. It creates monthly and yearly reports on the amount of waste generated, treatment methods used, and the percentage of treated waste in each emirate. Such initiatives drive the waste management sector, based on the need for dedicated waste management facilities. Effective waste management techniques are being encouraged across the country, and hence, improve the sustainability of the country’s environment and economy. Innovation to disrupt the traditional waste management techniques in the entire GCC region was led by the Dubai Municipality’s efforts in installing electronic gates and smart weighbridges at all of its waste disposal sites to make them smart and sustainable. The entire region is looking for an integrated waste management practice that greatly emphasizes the waste-to-value methods, such as recycling, refurbishment, and refining facilities and various other waste-to-energy methods.

Construction and Demolition Waste Segment Holds Major Market Share

Out of total non-hazardous solid wastes generated in Abu Dhabi, the construction and demolition (C&D) wastes account for 42% of the total weight. This includes building materials, such as insulation, nails, electrical wiring, and rebar, as well as waste originating from site preparation such as dredging materials, tree stumps, and rubble. It is expected that construction and development activities and associated C&D waste production will continue to rise in this region. Hence, if not managed properly, it is expected that dumping of C & D will become uncontrolled. This will not only cause negative environmental impact on soil, water and air and the surrounding ecosystem but also result in depletion of finite resources.

The Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) has opened a new facility to recycle construction and demolition waste in Ghayathi in the emirate’s Al Dhafra region. Located near the Ruwais oil fields and the UAE-Saudi Arabia border, the new facility will help ease the pressure on Al Dhafra landfill, which is anticipated to receive construction and demolition waste in the range of 60,000-70,000 tons per month with an average daily inflow of 1,500-2,000 tons. The opening of the Ghayathi recycling facility is aligned with strategic plan to implement a world-class waste management system in Abu Dhabi and position the United Arab Emirates at the forefront of innovative recycling.

Competitive Landscape

The UAE industrial waste management market is fragmented in nature with the presence of small, medium, and large sized companies.
