Dulsco to construct $6.8m Dubai recycling plant
The 4.64ha plant located in Dubai Industrial Park is due for completion in 2018
UAE-headquartered Dulsco has broken ground on a recycling plant worth $6.8m (AED25m).
Due for completion in 2018, the 4.64ha (500,000 sqf) facility will be located in Dubai Industrial Park (pictured).
The first phase of the plant spans 1.85ha (200,000 sqf), and the facility will feature a fully automated sorting line with a capacity of five tonnes per hour.
A maintenance workshop and recycling and materials recovery plant will be developed as part of the first phase.
Designed as a green building, the integrated waste management facility will aim to efficiently use energy, water, and other resources.
Remarking on the facility's development, Saud Abu Al-Shawareb, COO of Dubai Industrial Park, said: "In line with Dubai Plan 2021 that supports the efficient utilisation of energy resources, sustainable waste management is a non-negotiable priority if we are to maintain a high quality of life in our cities.
"The adoption of green solutions is therefore an imperative necessity for the manufacturing industry."
David Stockton, managing director of Dulsco, added: "In line with Dubai’s aspiration to emerge as a sustainable city, Dulsco is now gearing up to address challenges and support the government’s proactive initiatives towards achieving the emirate’s recycling and waste reduction goals.
"When we were looking for areas to expand, Dubai Industrial Park proved the best option due to its location, facilities and the enthusiasm shared by its management team."
