The waste is transported in a pipe system that runs in ceilings and culverts, hidden from the public eye.
Doha’s state of the art Hamad International Airport opened in April 2014 and has a design capacity of 50 million passengers per year. Envac designed, built and now operates and maintain nine systems at the aiport.
Five systems collect all the catering waste from the Qatar Airlines Flight Catering while the other four systems collect mixed waste generated within the terminal building. The kitchen waste system operates at over 99% availability in an environment where efficiency is crucial to the success of the operation.
