Underground automated waste collection system Envac has won two projects in Dubai with the Emirates Flight Catering Facility.
This follows installation of the world’s largest operational automated waste collection system for flight kitchens installed at the facility in 2008.
Envac will be installed into new separate food preparation and waste handling facilities within the flight catering facility, in a move worth approximately 30,000,000 United Arab Emirates Dirham (£5.1m).
Graham Bell, regional president of Envac Middle East and India, said: “Envac’s presence in the Middle East continues to expand in line with the region’s buoyant economy and these new contracts will play a role in shaping the Middle East’s sustainability and waste management legacy.”
Envac has already earmarked the aviation sector as a huge growth area for automated waste collection.
Raad Hulow, assistant vice president at Emirates Flight Catering said: “It is essential that the Middle East future-proofs its infrastructure so that the region is able to meet the demands of high footfall not just today but also 25 years from now.”
