Tadweer opens expanded used tyre recycling facility in Abu Dhabi
Tadweer Grows Tyre Recycling Operation
Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre, Tadweer, has announced the opening of its expanded used tyre recycling facility in Abu Dhabi. Run in strategic partnership with the private sector, the facility aims to ensure the safe disposal of used tyres to avoid public health and environmental risks.
To ensure the facility’s success, Tadweer has contracted with Tarheel Collecting Wastes, an Abu Dhabi-based firm with over ten years of extensive expertise in waste management and environment services, the company said in a statement.
Under its partnership with Tadweer, Tarheel collects and cleans used tyres prior to their recycling and treatment at the dedicated facility. With a capacity to treat 70,000 tons of used tyres annually, the facility has recycled nearly 17,000 tons of tyres since the beginning of 2020 until the end of its third quarter.
In collaboration with its Italian partner, Tarheel has set up a new integrated automated plant that has increased its total facility capacity to 100,000 tons annually.
Dr. Salem Al Kaabi, Director-General of Tadweer, said, "The opening of our expanded used tyre recycling facility is aligned with Tadweer’s strategic objective of converting used tyres from an economic burden into a valuable economic resource. In addition to reducing the adverse effects of scrap tyres on public health and the environment, the expanded facility will go a long way in saving energy and cutting related costs."
