  • Outline of the EU`s ambitions with regard to a European Circular Economy
  • Main elements of the EU`s legislative and policy changes to stimulate and facilitate circular economy
  • How do the main envisaged legislative changes affect waste management operators in and outside the EU?
  • Which elements of the new European Union Circular Economy Package could be interesting/relevant for waste management authorities and operators in the Middle East?

  • How many times have you been woken up by the noise of waste collection trucks early in the morning? Or are you irritated by how fast they drive through your district and the dangers they pose to other road users and pedestrians?
  • It’s perfectly possible to create a city where conventional waste collection trucks become almost obsolete. A city with less noise, less traffic and lower emissions.
  • When a development uses a pneumatic waste management system, traffic decreases by 90%. For example, in a typical residential district with 3,500 apartments, waste collection trucks only need to spend 177 hours per year removing waste from the Envac collection station. This compares to 3,718 hours per year when the trucks have to collect waste from each individual building as they do in a conventional waste collection system.

I look forward to attending FM EXPO every year as I always find new ideas to improve the quality of work in the most cost effective way. Last year I got the idea from FM EXPO on how to reduce the cost of cleaning and improve the quality and after implementing the plan I managed to save more than AED 380,000 per year from my FM budget. This year my target is to improve MEP maintenance quality and reduce the cost!
