Dubai, United Arab Emirates-Thursday 27 January 2022 [ AETOS Wire ]

Dulsco, an integrated solutions provider and the Official Waste Management Partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, recently commissioned its state-of-the-art Material Recovery Facility in Dubai. Located at Ras Al Khor, the new recycling processing plant has a capacity of 80,000 tonnes per year and is a key component of the company’s comprehensive environmental solutions offering.

Dulsco’s first manual sorting plant, with a capacity of 40 tonnes per day, was built in 2013 in support of the UAE’s mandate to reduce waste to landfills. However, the plant started exceeding capacity within a few years, necessitating the need for a new facility. 

David Stockton, Dulsco CEO, said: “As our first plant started reaching capacity, we commissioned a new state-of-the-art material recycling facility. This facility is not only enabling us to reinvent, reimagine, repurpose, and reuse our cust ... Read more »

TAMPERE, Finland-Tuesday 25 January 2022 [ AETOS Wire ]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Children and young people are exposed to a wide range of gendered violence. However, the phenomenon is poorly understood, which makes helping the victims difficult. The international Education and Raising Awareness in Schools to Prevent and Encounter Gender-Based Violence (EraseGBV) project, coordinated by Tampere University, produced an online course to help identify, prevent and address gender-based violence.
