•    Swiss Government Export Finance Agency backs one of the largest foreign direct environment investments in UAE
•    AED120 million e-waste recycling facility with 39,000 tons processing capacity to span 228,000 square feet
•    Region’s first renewable energy-powered recycling facility with zero air, liquid emissions

Dubai-UAE: 19 April, 2017 – Enviroserve UAE, a global leader in the delivery of niche waste and environmental solutions, has signed an agreement with Dubai Wholesale City for the construction of a 228,000 sq ft electronics and specialized waste recycling plant at Dubai Industrial Park, the dedicated industrial hub within Dubai Wholesale City. 

The signatories included Abdulla Belhoul, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Wholesale City, and Stuart Fleming, Group CEO of Enviroserve UAE.

Backed by the Swiss Government Export Finance Agency, the AED120 million project represents one of the largest foreign direct investments in the field of environmental management in the UAE. The facility will serve as the region’s largest center of expertise for electronic waste management in the Middle East. 

The first plant-of-its-kind plant will recycle the entire range of end-of-life electrical and electronic equipment ranging from consumer and industrial to commercial and military appliances, such as air conditioners, batteries, IT equipment, household appliances, military avionics and mobile phones. In addition, it will recycle specialized waste material, such as aerosol cans and lightbulbs, to become the only dedicated refrigerant reclaim facility in the UAE.

Expected to commence operations by end-2017, Phase 1 of the plant will comprise state-of-the-art equipment to process 39,000 tons of electronic waste annually. 

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Abdulla Belhoul said: “At Dubai Industrial Park, we strongly support environment-friendly solutions as part of our strategic commitment to promoting sustainable manufacturing and socially responsible practices. With a growing number of business partners setting up operations in our integrated mega hub, this innovative recycling facility will add significant value to advancing sustainable and organic development in our community.” 

He added: “Our partnership with Enviroserve UAE demonstrates how our world-class infrastructure and allied services help our clients seamlessly adapt to new market conditions and opportunities. We are confident the project will spearhead the development of a sustainable electronic waste management market in the region.”

For his part, Stuart Fleming said “We are delighted to join hands with Dubai Industrial Park to advance waste management solutions within this mega hub. Our new integrated recycling plant will be a true game-changer in electronic and specialized waste recycling for Dubai and the wider Middle East region. Utilizing best-in-class technology, the iconic facility will elevate the sustainability movement in the region.”

A pioneer in innovation in the recycling sector, Enviroserve UAE offers sustainable solutions that strictly adhere to UAE regulations, international standards established by the United Nations Environment Programme, as well as and the Waste of Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive 2002/95/EC). Accredited to ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards, Enviroserve’s plant processes have earned the stamp of approval from internationally recognized auditing companies.

Enviroserve’s  decision to set up a state-of-the-art recycling facility at Dubai Wholesale City comes at a time when a UN-sponsored research project has indicated that the average UAE resident produces 17.2 kilograms of e-waste each year. Amounting to nearly 600,000 tons in 2015, e-waste generation in the GCC region is expected to reach 900,000 tons in 2020.
