Veolia Water Technologies has won a contract with Dubai Municipality to engineer, procure and construct a hazardous liquid waste treatment plant.

The plant will treat 200 m3/shift (three shifts a day) of hazardous liquids, including acidic waste, alkaline waste, oil waste, and wastewater. It will be designed with various pre-treatment systems, each adapted to a specific type of hazardous liquid, and will utilise Veolia’s Multiflo technology.

“We are committed to developing and implementing solutions to manage waste effectively and we are proud of our partnership with Dubai Municipality,” said Veolia Water Technologies chief operating officer for the Middle East, Thierry Froment.

The plant is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2017.

The agreement is a first of its kind in UAE, and aims to prepare Dubai for an anticipated increase in quantity of hazardous liquid waste, as existing industries expand and new ones start up.
