A More Eco-Friendly World Cup in Qatar

November 23,2022


World Cup started on November 21, 2022, in Qatar. Long before that, Qatar was implementing environmental solutions to achieve the sustainable development goals of this year's World Cup and host a "sustainable" World Cup.

The highest committee of the organization's heritage (SC), in cooperation with the general cleaning department, placed the station near the major events held during the November World Championships.

According to Hassan Nasr al Nasr, Assistant Director of the Waste Recycling and Treatment Department, the goal of these stations is to effectively collect waste, while using more environmentally friendly breakthrough technologies to accelerate the transfer process.

He also said that they would improve the public health of the World Cup venues where a large number of tourists are expected, while protecting the environment and supporting the Ministry's sustainable development goals.

Large vehicles will be deployed to transport seven times the load capacity of existing trucks in the country, from 3-7 tons to nearly 22 tons, thereby reducing the demand for public infrastructure and roads.

Qatar's "zero waste" strategy in the FIFA Arab CupWhat is the recycling process?

The number of tourists this year is up to 1 million, and proper waste management is the key to ensure that the event is more sustainable and environmentally friendly.

To make waste management easier, recycling bins will be placed throughout the country.

The truck will then collect the waste from the designated location and transport it to the waste treatment plant for disposal.

Various facilities for effective waste classification will be available, and a sophisticated machine will be ready to synthesize organic waste, such as leftover food,biodegradable packaging, and grass cuttings.

The non recyclable garbage will be transported to the domestic solid waste management center in Qatar for incineration and converted into energy.

It is planned to use a packer to compress plastic waste to make it easier to manage, similar to the way the country achieved "zero waste" status at the FIFA Arab Cup last year. As a result, all waste will be converted into fertilizer, electricity or properly recycled.

The process of transforming garbage into fertilizer requires the full use of biodegradable bags. The drink cup used in this World Cup is wrapped in a biodegradable bag, and the cup can be recycled. The fully biodegradable film bag is 100% environment-friendly material, which is produced by PLA fermented from plant base. This  fully biodegradable bag is produced by Hunan Green Star Biotechnology Co., Ltd.
