The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is making significant strides towards achieving its net-zero objectives by introducing electric waste management trucks. Collaborating in this initiative, Renault Trucks Middle East and Al Masaood have unveiled the first fully electric waste trucks in the region, which will be utilized by Tadweer, a prominent waste management company in Abu Dhabi.

The production of these vehicles by Renault Trucks followed a fruitful partnership agreement that was forged during the EcoWaste Exhibition and Conference. In order to evaluate the trucks’ performance in high-temperature conditions and address logistical challenges like charging infrastructure, Renault Trucks E-tech will conduct a pilot program. This endeavor aims to gather crucial data and ensure the trucks’ efficiency along key routes.

The adoption of these electric trucks is anticipated to result in a remarkable reduction of over 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually. With an impressive operational range of up to 200 kilometers, these vehicles exhibit a commendable capability.

Ali Al Dhaheri, the Managing Director and CEO at Tadweer, expressed the company’s unwavering commitment to drive a sustainable future and support Abu Dhabi’s Environment Vision 2030 as well as the UAE’s Net Zero 2050 ambitions. Al Dhaheri further emphasized Tadweer’s pioneering role in waste management, leveraging advanced technologies to ensure the success of their operations.
