Qatar government pays special attention to waste management and treatment to save environment
02 Dec 2023News
Analysts in the nation are applauding the solid waste management business, even when Qatar's economy is among the fastest growing in the world. According to a report by market research firm Mordor Intelligence, the solid waste management industry in Qatar is expected to develop at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.81 percent.
According to the research, one of Qatar's biggest problems is municipal solid waste management. This is mostly because of the country's rapid urbanisation, industrial development, high population growth rate, and economic progress. Nonetheless, Qatar has one of the highest rates of garbage output per person in the world—up to 1.8 kilogrammes per day.
The nation also generates around 2.5 million metric tonnes of municipal solid garbage annually. About 60% of the solid waste stream is made up of organic materials, with recyclables including glass, paper, metals, and plastics making up the remaining trash stream.
In order to save the environment, experts pointed out that Qatar is mainly concentrating on waste management. According to the research, the Qatari government is working to reduce the quantity of garbage generated by homes, businesses, and industries while also attempting to recycle and repurpose waste.
According to Mordor Intelligence, more than 99 percent of Qatar's population resides in metropolitan regions, and the nation produces more garbage in the municipalities with larger populations and concentrations of industry, like Doha.
However, due to high industrialization activities like the construction associated with the Qatar National Vision 2030 and the recently concluded mega sporting event, the capital city alone is expected to contribute nearly 60% of the total solid waste generated in the nation.
Apart from the garbage generated by households, the construction sector is one of the primary industry in Qatar that generates waste.
