Topic: Driving Circular Economy through Sustainable Waste Management.
Stringent legislations, growing environmental pressure and increasing costs has limited the options for waste disposal, however opened avenues to regenerate, reuse and recycle waste, leading to cost saving and conservation of resources. At ADNOC Gas Processing, we believe “Waste” as a resource but at wrong place. Being an O&G company, we generate an array of hazardous wastes including spent catalyst, molecular sieves, waste-oil, garnet etc. Through implementing a robust waste management strategy, starting from segregation at source and adopting 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) approach, we have diverted ≈75% of our hazardous waste, including e-waste, from landfilling or incineration to the approved recyclers, where the waste is regenerated and put back into the system leading to conservation of natural resources, a true exemplar of embracing circular economy. In addition, our effort is generating us an annual revenue of ≈US$5million that includes cost avoided towards waste disposal and revenue received from recyclers.
