Tadweer to build Abu Dhabi’s 1st greenfield Material Recovery Facility

Tadweer Group has announced the closed bidding for the planned development of Abu Dhabi’s first greenfield Material Recovery Facility (MRF).

The state-of-the-art facility will recover recyclable materials derived from municipal solid waste, significantly maximizing the diversion of waste from landfills through recycling and preparing feedstock for the Abu Dhabi Waste to Energy facility.

Further, this will enable increased recycling, promoting a circular economy and supporting Tadweer Group’s wider ambition of diverting 80 percent of Abu Dhabi’s waste away from landfill by 2030.

The MRF will be developed as part of the organization’s circular cluster, a series of facilities, which will contribute to the circular economy and ensure that minimal waste ends up in landfills. The long-term objectives for the facility include providing feedstock for other waste conversion processes and products, such as waste to Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

The facility will also serve to promote local and foreign private sector investment and create employment and training opportunities for UAE nationals. The expected capacity will be 1.3 million metric tons per year. Additionally, the facility will cover an area of over 90,000 square meters, making it one of the largest MRFs in the region, and will be located within the Al Mafraq Industrial area, 36 kilometers from the center of Abu Dhabi.

Further, the facility is designed to meet a number of strategic objectives for Tadweer Group, with a focus on landfill diversion. This includes its role as a stepping stone for the next phase of the organization’s growth, as Tadweer Group transitions to a high diversion and high recycling system.
