KEO worked closely with the Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (QCC) to develop and initiate new product conformity schemes for a number of prioritized waste materials in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Waste streams selected for the initial stage of the project included recycled crushed aggregate, recycled oils, organic waste, waste tires, and plastics.
The project’s primary objectives were:
- to divert problematic waste streams away from landfills by creating alternative uses.
- to provide necessary mechanisms to support Abu Dhabi’s waste management and sustainability goals.
- to launch product conformity schemes for products produced from targeted waste materials.
