Expo 2020 Dubai has announced a new partnership with Dulsco, which will support Expo 2020 Dubai in diverting 85 per cent of its waste away from landfill. 
As Expo 2020's Official Waste Management Partner, Dulsco will implement innovative solutions, supporting Dubai's aim to host one of the most sustainable World Expos ever. Dulsco's purpose-built Waste2Resource (W2R) facility, located in Dubai South, will help to divert waste from landfill in the lead-up to and during Expo 2020. This will be achieved by using the latest technologies to reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose, contributing to the circular economy, where waste becomes a valuable resource for other activities.
Najeeb Mohammed Al Ali, executive director, Dubai Expo 2020 Bureau, said: "It is essential to the future of our planet that we live more sustainable lives, and World Expos can play an important role in promoting long-term solutions to environmental issues. By collaborating with Dulsco, Expo 2020 has an opportunity to assist the circular economy through effective waste management, helping to preserve our surroundings and shape a better world for generations to come." 
The partnership directly aligns with Expo 2020's subtheme of Sustainability, and supports the 75 per cent waste recycling target set out in UAE Vision 2021. Expo's collaboration with Dulsco also includes supporting and working with local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), which are repurposing glass, metal and other materials using their own expertise and innovations. Cooperating with this community of SMEs, the W2R facility will receive, recover, process, recycle and upcycle waste - converting it into valuable resources and products to be fed back into the market.
Abdulaziz Mohammed Khan Abdullah said: "We are delighted to partner with Expo 2020 to provide sustainable, innovative solutions to waste management, and contribute to an enduring legacy that supports District 2020 and Dubai South. Dulsco is a local company that has its roots in Dubai's community, and has operated in the Emirates for more than 80 years. We will use our knowledge, passion and drive, alongside partnerships with key global waste-diversion technology companies, to support Expo 2020 in its target to achieve 85 per cent waste diversion." - business@khaleejtimes.com
