HIA signs waste management MOU to bolster Qatar’s National Vision 2030

By Luke Barras-hill |

Hamad International Airport (HIA) has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to modernise and enhance the airport’s waste management facilities.

A collaboration via the Qatar Company for Airports Operation and Management (MATAR) and Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) will manage different types of waste from HIA to the MME’s Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre (DSWMC).

An integrated system for waste separation, safe transportation, recycling, waste disposal and promoting environmental awareness and sustainability are among the objectives.

These feed into Qatar’s National Vision 2030 development plan that includes environmental stewardship.

HIA has pledged to improve carbon efficiency per traffic unit to 30% by 2030 and is certified at Level 3 by the Airport Council International’s Airport Carbon Accreditation programme.

Separately, HIA has a waste water treatment plant, which in 2018 was successful in recovering 93% of waste water for re-use.
