EcoWASTE 2014 is expected to attract over 50 local and international suppliers and more than 2,000 buyers and professionals from across the region
Abu Dhabi, Jan 8, 2014 - (ACN Newswire) - The inaugural debut of EcoWASTE, the dedicated waste management and recycling event in the Middle East, to be held in Abu Dhabi, from 20 to 22 January 2014, will gather prominent local and international institutions, determined to find timely solutions to address the sustainable disposal and recycling of waste.
Several key players located in the United Arab Emirates have confirmed their presence at EcoWASTE 2014. The Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group (ADSG), a membership organization established in 2008 to promote sustainability management in Abu Dhabi in a spirit of cooperation and open dialogue, was one of the first to do so.
"One of the key focus areas identified by ADSG members is waste management - and it is something that we have been working on with our members and stakeholders for the last two years. In fact, our participation in Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) includes having sessions and speakers who will highlight and raise awareness about waste management," said Huda Al Houqani from the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Group (ADSG).
Bee'ah, headquartered in the Emirate of Sharjah, will also be attending EcoWASTE 2014. With over 300 million dirhams invested in tools and infrastructure as an effort to overcome the UAE's waste challenges and by means of several projects, Bee'ah has enabled the Emirate of Sharjah to benefit from its waste and put resources back into the economic cycle.
Other organizations, most of them based in countries known for their environmentally-friendly initiatives, such as Germany, Switzerland and Finland, among others, will also make their way to EcoWASTE 2014 to showcase some of their latest and most innovative technologies.
Eldan Recycling, from Denmark, is a global supplier of recycling equipment for processing of tyres, cables, WEEE, aluminium, refrigerators, MSW, magnesium and various scrap. The company has delivered machines and complete turn-key systems to the recycling industry for more than 55 years and holds a track record of over 7100 single machines and 830 plants delivered worldwide - including several recycling plants to the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Jordan.
Henning Norgaard, Territory Manager at Eldan, believes fast construction growth, an increasing manufacturing base and a booming service sector, has opened up new opportunities for the recycling industry, especially in the United Arab Emirates.
"We have noticed a fast increase in requests from the United Arab Emirates since we sold our first tire recycling plant to the region back in 2004. Recent inquiries to Eldan Recycling show that many local players have realized that waste is not worthless. The United Arab Emirates is not just expanding fast they are also a world leader in adapting new technologies, and ideas. We are definitely looking forward to EcoWASTE 2014."
The Center of Waste Management - Abu Dhabi (CWM), the lead agency responsible for controlling and coordinating waste management activities, policies, strategies and contractual systems through the Emirate, who has partnered with Masdar to host EcoWASTE 2014, is certain of the success of the event.
"We are happy to see so many leading companies sign-up for EcoWASTE 2014. By coming together, networking and exchanging best practices we have an even greater chance of finding more efficient and effective ways to manage waste locally and globally.
We are positive that through its targeted exhibition and workshops EcoWASTE 2014 will provide great growth opportunities for all participants," said H.E. Eisa Saif Al Qubaisi, General Manager at the Center of Waste Management - Abu Dhabi.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
