In this year’s exhibition, VEOLIA will once again be showcase top-performing technical and environmental water, waste and energy management solutions.
Xavier Joseph, CEO, Gulf Countries, Veolia Environnement: “WETEX is unique because it tackles critical issues in energy conservation, water and electricity, including environmental protection and preservation, green building, added-value offering towards smartest cities including energy efficiency management, carbon reduction and resources optimization - issues all relevant to Veolia.” “The UAE produces approximately 2.5 kg of waste per person per day, so our focus is to help the UAE become world-class in waste management and recycling and recovery of resources, which are prerequisites for future growth” added Joseph.
