EcoWaste 2015 to showcase next-generation waste handling technology from Germany

German manufacturing giant Terex Fuchs will take centrestage at EcoWaste 2015, showcasing material handlers that incorporate powerful and reliable hydraulics capable of handling heavy waste loads. The machines are designed for in-port handling, recycling management, scrap handling and timber handling.

With a variety of machine variants capable of working in the radii of 8.2 meters to 23 meters and supporting operating weights of 19 to 90 tons, each Terex Fuchs handling machine is optimally designed to efficiently provide reliable day-to-day performance and outstanding quality and durability.

The company seeks to offer specific advantages to the end-user: the machine can be customized by the Terex Fuchs Application Center (APC) to individual client specifications.

Terex Fuchs’ participation at EcoWaste 2015 comes at a time when the GCC region annually accounts for more than 120 million tons of solid waste – a figure that is set to increase in the short term. Abu Dhabi alone is responsible for six million tons of all waste, a figure that could eventually reach 30 million tons given current growth projections.

Waste by-products, such as discarded metal, electrical and plastic goods, can leave behind substances that drip-feed into the environment causing irreversible harm. Given the urgent need for innovative solutions to this growing problem, the EcoWaste exhibition will cover the entire spectrum of solid waste management services in the context of the dramatic increase in per capita waste production in the GCC region.

Mr. Max Loire, Business Manager at TEREX FUCHS said: “We are delighted to be participating in EcoWASTE 2015, which offers us an ideal opportunity to network with leading global and regional experts in waste management and discuss with them the challenges of sustainability and recycling. We also look forward to offering to new markets our latest technologies and solutions that help tackle the problem of increasing waste generation resulting from the continued population growth.”

Organized by Reed Exhibitions as part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW), EcoWaste 2015 will be co-hosted by Tadweer (Center of Waste Management – Abu Dhabi) and Masdar at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). Running from January 19-22, the exhibition is expected to draw 50 leading companies, key industry experts and more than 2,000 buyers from around the world.

EcoWaste 2015 will be staged alongside the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) and the International Water summit (IWS) as part of ADSW, a government initiative that positions Abu Dhabi as a leading innovator in global sustainability. These parallel platforms will facilitate debate and offer potential solutions stressing the interconnectivity between energy, water and waste.
