Abu Dhabi By 2021
Abu Dhabi – This has been the result of efforts by the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) to increase its pest control activities by increasing the number of smart mosquito traps from 200 to 640 in Abu Dhabi.
In its report on major incidents last year, Tadweer said the total number of applications for pest control equipment used was 103,922, ranging from pest control activities, annoying insects, harmful insects, to stray animals.
By 2021, the number of applications for pest control increased by 25,000, compared to 2020, with 78,484 applications recorded, the report said. The outbreak was due to an increase in urban migration, which has led to many pest management needs in new areas and settlements.
Tadweer said it has also been very successful in a variety of areas, including garbage collection and cleaning facilities, public awareness, signing agreements, digital transformation, improved waste industry monitoring, occupational health and safety management, and business continuity.
Cleaning waste and recycling plants
In 2021, Tadweer launched the commercial operation of three hazardous waste treatment centers in Abu Dhabi, as well as a livestock dump in Abu Dhabi and Al Dhafra, following the highest international and domestic standards to ensure safe and proper disposal of all species. waste.
The facility has processed about 108,000 tons of medical and hazardous waste, and discarded about 8,000 tons of fallen livestock.
Tadweer also produced approximately 2.7 million tons of recycled compounds from demolition and recycling of construction waste, as well as about 37,000 tons of organic fertilizer from agricultural and animal waste, in line with the emirate’s vision of achieving its ecological efficiency and sustainable management goals.
Addressing the impact of Covid-19
Tadweer has completed 80 percent of Covid-19 impact projects and programs, according to its approved operating system, completing 1,200 testing procedures associated with safety measures.
The institute also participated in a national sterilization campaign by providing and using 227 days of spraying. More than 950 employees participated in the campaign daily, recording an average of 10 working hours per day, with an estimated 1.7 million hours in the campaign.
Last year, Tadweer also provided nine new recycling centers (waste mines), reaching a total of 17 centers in Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi City, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain City, District of Al Dhafra).
Dr. Salem Khalfan Al Kaabi, Director-General of Tadweer, said that Tadweer’s mission was to create integrated waste management systems, battle public health hazards, and deliver vital services to clients and the general public.
This year, the center would continue to research novel waste management options and enhance trash management, as part of its commitment to playing a significant role in ensuring a safe, healthy, and sustainable environment in Abu Dhabi, which would help the emirate’s long-term growth.
