Waste Recovery: International show “Revade” to be held in October in Algiers

The 2nd edition of the International Show of Waste Recovery and Recycling “Revade” will be held from 9 to 12 October at the Centre of Exhibition (Algiers), announced the Ministry of Commerce, APS reported.

Dedicated to the collection, sorting, transport, treatment, recovery and recycling of waste, this fair is organized by the Algerian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CACI) in collaboration with the National Waste Agency ( AND) and SAFEX.

“Waste recovery, which was previously a purely environmental concern, has become an economic activity capable of generating a financial value of 38 billion DA / year and consequently creating many direct as well as indirect  employment positions (7,600 jobs can be created in the PET sector which generates nearly 350,000 tons / year), “said the same source.

Recent statistics show that there is a market of some 300,000 tons / year of special waste (tires, used oils, batteries and 3E waste), of which only 150,000 tons are recovered and exploited, for example, about 16 companies are active in collecting and exporting waste oils.

There are also about 10 private companies active in the recovery and upgrading of used tires and mainly realize road mats and aggregate whose market remains very promising, added the same source.

On the other hand, several American, French and South African companies have expressed their great interest in setting up industrial centers in the recycling of computer equipment, the same source said, making it clear that the waste recycling sector remains little developed in Algeria.
