Project status
Saudi Arabia / Office

Envac’s collection station is located outside of the King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) site which means that no waste collection vehicles are required to enter the development eliminating disruption and disturbance from them

KAFD is designed to become the largest financial center in the Middle East and the headquarters of the Capital Market Authority, the Stock Exchange and the Commodity Market and for Financial Institutions and related service providers.

When complete, KAFD is expected to require 44,000 new office personnel and accommodate 12,000 residents. KAFD will consist of high-rise residential and office towers, residential villas, retail areas, 6 luxury hotels, community and cultural facilities and a convention & exhibition center.

When operational Envac’s systems will be capable of transporting 145 tons/day of mixed waste and in doing so will significantly reduce carbon emissions by reducing the distance that on-road waste collection trucks are required to travel. This will create a clean, safe and sustainable development.

Envac's approach to KAFD will be the first time 4 separate collection networks terminate at one collection station.
