Tadweer announces the application of IoT technology at C&D waste recycling in the Al Dhafra region

Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center – Tadweer announced the application of Internet of Things (IoT) technology at the construction and demolition waste recycling station in the Al Dhafra region of Abu Dhabi. This step, which is the first of its kind in the Middle East, was implemented in cooperation with Al Dhafra Recycling Industries and the UK’s Synthotech.

The IoT technology will enable the C&D Waste Recycling Station to increase operating time to the maximum limit, while also improving energy efficiency through the use of smart remote movement sensors which will monitor the station’s assets and machinery. This technology will connect every device using a cloud-based platform that can produce a detailed analysis of every device’s status.

The technology enables remote monitoring systems at the station to measure the health and status of devices, such as temperature and vibration per minute, providing data that reduces the likelihood of devices going offline and increasing their lifespan, thereby improving the station’s overall efficiency.

Abdul Mohsen Mubarak Al Katheeri, Director of Projects and Facilities at Tadweer, said: “Applying IoT technology at the Center’s C&D waste recycling station is in line with Tadweer’s efforts of keeping up with the latest and most advanced technology and employing it at its facilities. Tadweer is dedicated to building strong partnerships and investing in the latest financial and technological assets and resources, which support our strategic goal of building an integrated waste management and treatment system. We are confident that this technology, which is the first of its kind in the Middle East, will maximise productivity and efficiency at the station.”
