At CWT, we design and build, operate and maintain Integrated Facilities for the management of hazardous waste and medical waste.
Our company started its service offerings locally in 2009 with a thermal stabilization unit to treat medical waste from healthcare facilities. CWT is now running multiple unit operations working with a diverse clientele and handling more waste streams as part of its integrated waste management solutions approach for hazardous waste and medical waste, even offering outside-the-country treatment for other “special wastes” that cannot be treated locally in the UAE; signing agreements with international consultants and operators to offer solutions that are compliant with EU standard practices and norms as we thrive to become a one-stop-shop for all our customer needs in this field.
Cleanco Waste Treatment is one of the largest providers of hazardous waste and medical waste management solutions in the region. We are operating and maintaining the largest number of incineration units in the UAE with a total treatment capacity of more than 60 tons per day for incineration alone.
In our incineration process, for instance, the wastes are fed to the line and mixed according to their physical and chemical properties through the feeder. These are then treated at 850°C in the primary combustion chambers and then the flue gases at subject to temperatures up to 1,200°C for secondary combustion to expel the toxins upon which the resulting flue gases are cooled and filtered prior to the release of the emissions and ashes. The wastes are transformed into ashes of two types, hazardous and non-hazardous which are sent to the hazardous waste landfill and sanitary landfill respectively, and the cleansed gases emitted from the incineration process pass through the stack and are released into the atmosphere “purified from contamination” in accordance with the EU Directives and UAE Emission standards governed by the Environmental Agency – Abu Dhabi (EAD).
CWT utilizes leading-edge technology and Best Available Techniques (BATs) adopting best practices worldwide to make sure that the operations at their plants and facilities follow European Union (EU) directives, standards, and norms, together with local and federal regulations of the country. Our plant control systems ensure full automation of the processes with minimal human interference and our data records are continuously ‘monitored and reviewed by respected governmental bodies ensuring that the readings are within the acceptable range allowed.
We at CWT are examining plans for undergoing an expansion in the scope of offering our solutions via building more disposal cells as part of our hazardous waste landfill, adding a neutralization system, a pre-treatment, and a redox system together with evaporation ponds and also solidification and stabilization facilities. Therefore, this planned development will soon be allowing CWT to become a principal provider of “Integrated Facilities” in this field in the region with all-in-one solutions for all our clientele needs.
