Takreer undertakes project for ADNOC to address dangerous waste residues
Abu Dhabi-based refining company Takreer, announced Monday that it is undertaking a project for ADNOC and its Group of Companies that involves the effective disposal of waste. The project named BEAAT was announced at ENVIRONMENT 2005, the 3rd international exhibition & conference held in Abu Dhabi 30 January – 2 February, 2005.
The project aims to manage all the dangerous waste products produced by ADNOC & its Group of companies by utilizing the latest technologies for treatment of hazardous waste in accordance with international standards. The new project consists of establishing a complete hazardous waste treatment facility, which complies with the IFA and the US Environment Protection Agency standards. A specialised warehouse for all waste treatment is also under consideration.
The new operation will rely heavily on stabilising and neutralising the negative effects of solid waste through chemical treatment by combining such wastes with cement to produce concrete blocks that can be buried in a safe manner, at varied depths. The second method consists of segregation of water from hazardous residues through a high technology process. The third method is built around burning solid waste in a high temperature furnace, in order to destroy all hazardous organic material present in the waste. This method helps to dispose of hazardous material such as mercury that is in light bulbs.
