Waste Management


The goals and objectives of the Waste Management Plan (WMP) are:

  • To minimise the generation of waste material by judicious use of raw material, and re-use or recycle of material when feasible
  • To treat or dispose of waste in such a way that the disposal activity and the treated waste have minimal impact on the surrounding environment.
  • To promote awareness of, and adherence to, proper waste management procedures by site workers.

The WMP includes basic procedures to ensure compliance with statutory requirements and standards of good practice relating to production, handling, transportation, storage, treatment and disposal of waste. The purpose of the plan is to ensure that the disposal of waste is carried out in an environmentally applicable manner. The plan includes establishing a system of waste management records, including the types and volumes of waste generated during each project activity. All waste is categorized as hazardous, non-hazardous or inert and there is a specific process to deal with medical waste.

The strategy for managing waste is based on the hierarchical principles of “Reduce, Re-use, Recycle and Recover”. The Ministry of Water and Environment provides assistance in identifying recycling and treatment waste facilities. The adoption of these principles results in the reduction of residual waste that ultimately requires disposal. Implementation of the plan involves first of all the segregation of waste streams to optimise re-use and recycling where it is deemed necessary, control and safe storage of residual waste, and finally waste disposal through incineration.

As part of its Wastewater Management Plan and Water Resource Management, Yemen LNG is analysing the possibility of re-using treated waste-water.  Potential uses include dust suppression, gardening or construction of green belts to limit desertification.  In any event, effluents will be tested before any re-use of water is allowed
