Veolia, through its subsidiary Veolia Water Technologies, has been awarded a contract by Dubai Municipality (DM) to engineer, procure, and construct  a hazardous liquid waste treatment plant in the emirate.

The deal comes as part of DM's efforts to cope with the challenges of managing hazardous liquid waste in Dubai. 

Commissioning of the plant is expected by the end of 2017, and the facility will be able to treat 200 m3 / shift of hazardous liquid waste, including  acidic waste, alkaline waste, oily waste and wastewater.

Three shifts have been planned for each day of operation. 

Thierry Froment, chief operating officer for Veolia Water Technologies in the Middle East, said: "Managing waste is a significant issue in today’s times, not just in the UAE, but across the world.

"Veolia is committed to developing and implementing solutions to manage waste effectively and we are proud of our partnership with Dubai Municipality."
