Testimonial of
“Waste Champion”
Mohammed Bani Jaber (HSE Coordinator) from
Midfield Terminal Building (MTB) Project
Abu Dhabi International Airport
For the prestigious MTB project which is pursuing
a 3 Pearls ESTIDAMA rating, responsible waste
management is a top priority. For example, project
requirements call for 75%
(*)
of construction waste
to be reused or recycled contractually. The Waste
Management Strategy (WMS) followed at MTB aims
to not only meet but exceed waste management
obligations. The applied strategy is based on the
classic waste minimization hierarchy revolving
around ‘the three Rs’: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
Applied examples include:
a.
Reduce
• Training personnel involved in waste
management activities
• Avoiding disposable items such as plastic and
paper cups or plates
• Purchasing goods in bulk to avoid excess
packaging
b.
Reuse
• Waste timber as formworks and signage
• Aggregates for backfilling at roadworks from
concrete waste
• Scrap tire as traffic barriers
c.
Recycle
• Office appliances and offsite equipment
disassembled and used as raw material
• Office paper
• Ink and cartridges
The key element ensuring proper waste handling
at MTB is the ongoing and collaborative efforts
between all involved parties including the project
management, construction teams, HSE team,
sustainability and Estidama professionals.
