FARZ is owned and operated by Imdaad, the leading integrated facility management company in the Middle East. The plant is built on a 45,322 m2 plot in Dubai’s National Industries Park, a 21 km2 area of specially designated land in the heart of Dubai’s new industrial district. Imdaad is responsible for the collection of C&I waste from the Jebel Ali Free Zone (JAFZA), a free economic zone located in the Jebel Ali area at the far western end of Dubai in the UAE.
Imdaad’s mission for the FARZ plant is closely aligned with Dubai’s target to hit zero waste to landfill by 2030, and the plant is widely recognized as having the most efficient recovery rate of any MRF in the UAE.
Using the very latest in automated technologies, the state-of-the-art MRF is capable of handling 1,200 tons per day of C&I waste and MSW. An automated system is used to maximize the recovery of the target fractions which are HDPE, PET, aluminum, ferrous metals, OCC, wood and PE bags.
Infeed waste arrives by truck to FARZ’s reception area where, following a pre-sorting stage, the MSW and C&I waste are separated into two lines; one for MSW and the other for C&I waste.
