UAE-based Dulsco, a regional leader in human resource solutions and waste management services, said its Environmental Solutions vertical has launched an advanced Oil Re-Refinery Plant, the first of its kind in the region.
Progress within any industry comes at the expense of an unfortunate by-product ''Waste''. Progressively developing economies such as the UAE’s value sustainability as an integral component of the country’s development efforts, and waste management is treated with the utmost of importance, said the statement from Dulsco.
Investing heavily in technology and innovation, Dulsco seeks to support the UAE’s agenda for sustainability and the country’s mission to achieve a circular economy.
CEO David Stockton said: "Our priority is to play a leading role nationally in implementing sustainable infrastructure for the future. We do this by ensuring that our values are applied through investment, expertise, and education in circular economy best practices and recycling projects."
"Our ultimate aim is not solely for us - we encourage others to maintain their resources for as long as possible, to extract maximum value during their lifespan. Materials can then be recovered and products regenerated as their service life comes to an end," noted Stockton.
Using expert manpower and cutting-edge technologies, Dulsco has developed environmentally aligned products and services to meet the unique needs of complex industries such as the nation’s ports and oil and gas sectors.
The company’s recent investment is a state-of-the-art oil re-refinery facility, capable of processing around 1,400 tonnes of oily waste and 600 sludge generated by the marine, oil, gas, and industrial sectors per month.
As a major regional and international trade hub, daily marine traffic into Jebel Ali and the Port of Rashid in Dubai is high, requiring a facility for safe disposal of marine waste, in line with IMO-Marpol standards.
Dulsco is the only waste management company in Dubai approved to handle all types of marine waste as per Marpol annex 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, stated Stockton.
"Dulsco’s re-refinery facility adds to Dubai’s goal of providing a fully-integrated resolution to the Maritime Industry’s various oily wastes to help protect the environment and our vital natural resources. Waste, oil, and oily sludge contains hazardous components. If used as fuel without treatment, toxic components are released into our environment that pollute the air we breathe and water we drink," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
