Veolia Environnement, the world leader in environmental services, has announced its inaugural participation in the seventh edition of World Future Energy Summit (WFES) which will be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre from 20-22 January 2014, under the patronage of H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi.
In this year’s conference, VEOLIA will be part of the French pavilion organised by UBIFRANCE, the French Agency for International Business Development. Drawing on the expertise of French companies, UBIFRANCE will be hosting conference cycles during WFES on topics such as geothermal energy, sustainable cities and solar storage solutions. VEOLIA will be participating in the sustainable cities and geothermal energy conference and will discuss energy efficiency challenges, state of the art of geothermal and energy recovery solutions.
VEOLIA will also present top-performing technical and environmental waste to energy solutions.
Xavier Joseph, CEO, Gulf Countries, Veolia Environnement: “The UAE produces approximately 2.5 kg of waste per person per day while 60 per cent of the capital’s waste is from construction and demolition sites. With this in mind and in-line with Abu Dhabi’s Environment 2030 vision, our focus at WFES will be to highlight how VEOLIA’s solutions portfolio can help in eliminating health hazards as well as enhancing value creation through optimized waste management pushing forward recycling and recovery of resources, as prerequisites for future growth.”
“We believe WFES is an excellent gateway that gives us the opportunity to launch new products, address customer and partner inquiries and increase our visibility. Apart from exploring new opportunities, the conference will be a significant platform for us to further strengthen our brand awareness in the region and to emphasise our commitment in the Middle East through our continuous investments,” he added
