Environmentally sustainable waste management is a hot topic in the Middle East today. Recently, the UAE adopted specific measures to achieve the ‘zero waste’ objective and successfully divert 75 per cent of waste from landfills by 2021. Oman is working to establish 13 engineered landfills and 36 waste transfer stations in different parts of the country. Saudi Arabia, whose volume of solid waste is expected to hit the 25,000 tonnes per day by 2020, is striving to reinforce its waste management and recycling sectors.
These industry challenges and related business opportunities will be explored during the Middle East Waste and Recycling with prominent experts. Andreas Hoeptner, Founder and Managing Partner of H-2-P Project Management, a specialist in facility and waste management, will be presenting his findings on ‘Medical Waste Masterplan: Developing a Healthcare Waste Strategy in Ras Al Khaimah’ at the expo. “It is a privilege to be invited to the event and share the results of my latest report with my peers. Middle East Waste and Recycling reflects the importance of concerted efforts among professionals of various disciplines in the region to effectively and efficiently manage waste and promote recycling among local communities. Such programs are integral to the region’s overall sustainable development goals. I am confident that the event will serve as an excellent venue to discuss solutions to challenges and new strategies to maximise opportunities,” Hoeptner said.
