GCC Enterprise Awards 2018

MEAMARKETS / 2018 GCC Enterprise Awards 7 , Sustainable Environmental Technologies (SET) is the leading company specialising in creative technology which is focused on reducing organic waste at the source. We profile the firm to learn more about its work, specifically in the area of food waste. Organic Waste Reduction Solutions Provider of the Year - 2018 GCC18012 As the world moves into a more environmentally conscious era, household food waste (HFW) received considerable attention within the region, due to the environmental, economic and social impact it generates. HFW comprises of the largest single waste fraction generated by households (up to 61%). Following ten years of research and development, SET has created the perfect solution to an ongoing problem worldwide, a food waste composting technology that is efficient, compact, easy to operate and size sufficient. ‘SET’S Food Waste Solution’ will make the world a healthier and a more sustainable place to live in for the current and future generations by converting ‘Food Waste into Food Resources.’ Food waste is an ever-going problem in the world, with 22,000 hectares of landfill overflowing in Abu Dhabi alone. The depth and scope of this issue is highlighted further after our research. The reality of our landfills suggests that 40% of this accumulated waste is brought on by wasted food that could have been composted and recycled. SET’s findings also conclude that the trickle effect of food waste emits 20-25% carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas that contributes to global warming. It is apparent that food waste needs to be reduced and recycled, as this type of food waste is a very much preventable problem. To drive change in the industry, SET produces Reddonatura and SmartCara technologies, which are the world’s leading food waste solutions, aiming to reduce food waste and recycle this into green compost. Seeking to safeguard the environment for future generations, SET’s vision is to ensure that these products become available to every household throughout the Middle East.
