Waste Management and Recycling Summit -Qatar

Waste to Energy & Waste to Resource will continue to shape the world’s environmental order, creating a global resource industry that is estimated to be a Billion dollar industry by 2040, opening a vast array of opportunities for the nations to develop an alternative source of GDP whilst depleting the existing resources.

The “3rd edition Waste Management & Recycling Summit- Qatar, 2014” is an initiative to understand & to explore the role of Waste Resources for a sustainable future. Qatar being the focus of the 3rd edition, in specific we are dealing with a number of 1.8kg per person per day of solid waste generation which sums up to a national figure of 28000kgT per day, 92% of which is directed towards landfills with an all time low of 3% Recycling rate.

With an active construction business, extensive hydrocarbon sector oriented economy, growing number of high income households & Qatar to host the world cup-2022, it will encounter a massive hike in the percentage of an additional expatriate labor force driven by World Cup 2022 for construction activities.
Due to which its household waste is forecasted to reach 5.6k T/day in 2032 with a peak at 5.7k T/day in 2020 which needs to be addressed much in advance to seize the potential of this resource. 

The measures proposed in the National Development Strategy 2011–2016 focused on the strategies for effective management of waste. The government recognizes a hierarchy of actions to alleviate pressures on the environment, with the most preferable goal being the avoidance of waste. The centre is expected to reduce the share of domestic waste disposed of in landfills to 3%–5%, thereby reducing the share of total waste sent to landfills from 92% to 64%. It will also convert waste to energy and raise the level of waste recycling from 8% to 20%–25%.

The Revenue potential for the solid waste value chain in Qatar is estimated to be ~ USD 663M. Significant opportunities include: Construction & Demolition Recycling (~USD 105M), Household: Recycling (~USD 100M), Commercial: Collection (~USD 76M) and Recycling (~USD 100M), Waste to Energy (WtE): ~USD 135M

With regard to governance over sustainability the proportion of private sector schemes is likely to rise in future as the Government seeks greater private sector participation in project development. This is likely to be reflected in private sector power developments, water and wastewater projects and in real estate development & sustainable development.

Qatar’s foray into waste-to-energy indicates the lucrative business opportunities in the emerging sustainable waste management sector. Hence, “NISPANA” presents “Waste Management & Recycling Summit- Qatar, 28th & 29th May-2014 at Doha, Qatar”, a 2 day conference to bring forward and highlight the future opportunities in this sector, Capture the most effective and latest technologies, Focused on investment in Waste Management and bring in the government officials, waste generators industry Experts & Solution Providers such as: landfill professionals and recycling firms from across the globe to share their expertise & educate the attendees  to make this initiative a bench mark in Waste Management –sector.
