Vanden Recycling has established a new location in Dubai, servicing the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) region, led by newly appointed Business Development Manager, Beril Yeşilırmak.
Currently, the recycling rate is less than 10% in the region, while established recycling ecosystems exceed 35% recycling rates. With research released last year finding that Saudi Arabia and UAE had gained the status of one of the world’s largest waste producers, the region is now pushing recycling initiatives to reach improved diversion rates as soon as 2021.
In order to achieve these goals, there is an urgent need for sustainable recovery systems and a structured approach to plastics recycling. Beril Yeşilırmak, newly appointed Business Development Manager for Vanden Recycling FZCO in Dubai, will be leading the organisation’s efforts in the GCC:
“With our extensive knowledge of polymers, markets, and processes, Vanden can help the region achieve its targets.
“Our strong belief that plastic ‘waste’ is a commodity that creates sustainable circular supply chains means that Vanden is well-positioned to support. Opportunities in the UAE and GCC are obvious with the low recycling rates and high waste generation.”
Vanden will support the recycling ecosystem, acting as a leader and offering expertise on recyclables, increasing awareness and creating value.
Beril added: “It’s imperative that we increase the awareness about the importance and the opportunities for plastic scrap and waste in the region with Vanden solutions.”
The Vanden company structure is well established, covering all the needs of the different markets. Access to all the required information and know-how has never been easier for our international teams.
