UAE: Development of a hazardous liquid waste treatment plant
Dubai Municipality and Veolia have signed a contract to enhance the capabilities of a hazardous liquid waste treatment plant. The agreement is a first of its kind in the UAE, and aims to make Dubai ready for the anticipated increase in the quantity of hazardous liquid waste, as existing industries expand and new ones are set up.
The plant is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2017 and will be able to treat 200 cubic metres of hazardous liquid waste, including acidic waste, alkaline waste, oily waste and wastewater.
