Abu Dhabi fortifies recycling process
Manufacturing and Industrial facilities in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, have received a go-ahead from the Government to trade their secondary industrial products either as reintroduction into production lines, or as raw materials to other businesses.
The Abu Dhabi Department of Economic Development (ADDED), through its Industrial Development Bureau (IDB), recently provided this resolution. The resolution was passed under the Directorship of Mohammed Munif Al Mansouri, Executive Director of the IDB.
The announcement provides a multitude of benefits to the manufacturing and industrial sector. While costs can be reduced at facility level, the revenue also receives a boost due to the ability to sell secondary products. Moreover, profitability prospects get boosted since the by-products would have been rendered non-usable till now.
The sustainability factor is also achieved by this announcement, since industrial waste is minimized. With companies re-selling industrial waste as raw materials, or re-using industrial waste in their own production lines, the waste disposal part is significantly reduced, leading to clear benefits in the environmental indicators.
The move is also aimed at enhancing cooperation between industrial facilities, while bolstering the circular recycling in the sector. Naturally, the economy is being driven to a path of self-sustenance, with minimal waste and external influence.
The move has been received with lot of positivity by industrial sector in Abu Dhabi.
