The extensive accumulation of municipal solid waste in Dubai resulted in difficulty for the natives to stay peacefully. To combat the issue, we established FARZ, which is a state-of-the-art Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) based in National Industries Park in Jebel Ali, Dubai. It was created in line with the goals of the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda, which envisages diverting 75 percent of all municipal solid waste away from landfills by 2021, FARZ is one of the largest fully-automated MRFs in the region and can process 1,200 tonnes of municipal, commercial, and industrial waste per day – equivalent to almost 13% of the total waste generated daily in Dubai.
Using advanced separation and recovery technologies, FARZ segregates and reclaims valuable materials including ferrous and non-ferrous metals, Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET), High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), PE bags, Old Corrugated Cardboard (OCC), and wood from the Commercial and Industrial (C&I). The facility plays a significant role in the country’s ongoing drive for sustainability.
