Advisory Committee for EIF 2013
With a growing population, a fast urbanisation and a soaring economy, waste production in Saudi Arabia has reached unprecedented levels. Because of its impact on the environment, human health and the economy, efficient waste infrastructure increasingly proves to be one of the centerpieces in the successful expansion of Saudi Arabia.
15 million tons of solid waste (5,000 tons in the city of Jeddah alone) are indeed generated every year in the Kingdom, which is by far the biggest production in the GCC countries. Every year, this figure increases at a significant pace and the ability of Saudi Arabia to answer this challenge will be a crucial factor for its continued economic development.
With $690 billion worth of projects being injected in the construction industry, encompassing the infrastructure, oil & gas, petrochemicals, water and electricity sectors, the country’s capacity to cope with increased production of municipal, industrial and commercial waste will be tested. In the first half of 2013, $17.82 million have already been awarded by the Ministry of Municipal and Rural Affairs for waste processing projects. This echoes the estimation from the World Bank which plans that tens of billions of dollars will be invested in waste management and environmental solutions over the next ten years.
In this context, EIF willl give all stakeholders the chance to identify the opportunities associated with the development of new waste infrastructure and the expansion and modernisation of existing assets by bringing together all major actors of the public and private sectors.
Who Should Attend?
EIF provides a unique opportunity for business professionals, industry experts and government agency attendees to discuss and debate the latest developments, challenges and opportunities available in the waste infrastructure sector in Saudi Arabia.
High level, public and private sector delegates from a broad cross section of the environment industry will be present for three days of networking, learning and identifying future business opportunities.
