An e-magazine Truck&FleetMe.com reports that the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center (Tadweer) has opened its expanded used tire recycling facility in Abu Dhabi with a capacity to treat 70,000 tons of end-of-life tires annually. The project was built in partnership with a private sector company Tarheel to ensure the safe disposal of used tires for minimizing environmental and public health risks. A statement from Tadweer said the private sector partner it has contracted with is Tarheel Collecting Wastes LLC, an Abu Dhabi-based firm with over 10 years of expertise in waste management and environment services. Under the partnership, Tarheel collects and cleans used tires prior to their recycling and treatment at the dedicated facility, which has recycled nearly 17,000 tons of tires this year until the end of the third quarter. Tarheel has set up a new integrated automated plant in collaboration with its Italian partner to increase its total facility capacity to 100,000 tons annually.
