Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre (Tadweer) has announced the opening of its organic waste composting unit in Abu Dhabi as part of the Centre’s plan to encourage both corporate and individual involvement in reducing organic waste.
The facility will help transfer the waste management sector from burying waste to utilising waste as a resource. This goal will be achieved through eliminating the need for landfills and economically encouraging compost production that could solve the challenges facing organic waste management and at the same time guarantee ‘self-production’ of fertilizer for local agriculture. Doing so will contribute to the reduction of cost and environmental and health risks associated with the collection and transportation of organic waste.
To divert organic waste away from landfills, the facility uses a compost machine that converts organic waste materials into biologically stable substances that will significantly reduce soil pollution in the areas used as landfills.
This procedure will improve the overall operations of the organic fertilizer unit by effectively managing the conversion of organic waste into compost from collection to segregation, to treatment and storage, and to the final distribution of organic fertilizer to end users.
