A recent news article mentioned that Abu Dhabi has been recycling its construction waste. With all of the construction going on, a lot of old buildings are being cleared, creating a lot of waste. The plant which was opened in May takes the concrete waste from demolished buildings, turns it into materials suitable for making roads, and sells it to construction companies. The hope is that after the mandatory midday summer breaks and Ramadan are over, things will pick up. According to the article, it will process 5,000 to 7,000 tons out of the 9,000 tons of daily waste that is produced. Hopefully, the plan ill work out. Regardless, I give the the people in charge credit for making an effort.
