WFES, IWS and EcoWaste set to kick off in Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, January 18, 2015

The World Future Energy Summit (WFES), International Water Summit (IWS) and EcoWaste all open their four-day exhibitions and conferences tomorrow (January 19), showcasing the latest in technological innovations in Abu Dhabi.

The three co-located events are taking place during the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) running until January 24, an international gathering hosted by Masdar.

ADSW is expected to attract more than 32,000 people from 170 countries, representing leading players in industry, government, finance and research, to take part in numerous high-level panel discussions, workshops and trade-floor product exhibitions.

The clean-energy sector will feature new technologies such as as:

•    A first-of-its-kind, fully integrated hybrid product that seamlessly captures both solar and wind energy to provide more consistent power generation in off-grid locations. This product provides an effective solution in markets where available natural resources do not justify investment in a solar or wind project.

•    A mobile solar power plant on a trailer with a 4.8 kWh capacity and battery storage of up to 20 kWh and includes a water pump that can produce 1,000 liters a minute.

•    A new turbine that converts energy from sea waves, whose high-energy density is the highest among renewable energy sources, demonstrates the technological advances being made in the emerging wave energy industry.

•    Parabolic sun-dish concentrators combined with a specialized steam generator suitable for enhanced oil recovery, power generation, water desalination operations and power generations.

Water technologies on display include:

•    A vending machine that produces, on a daily basis, 1,800 liters of pure water from air; the machine accepts coins or credit card and dispenses water in three, pre-set quantities.

•    A fully automated technology which reuses resources in the degradation process to treat contaminated soils. Using on-line sensor data, the product calculates the injections necessary to perform an optimal degradation of organic pollution in soil or groundwater, and is able to treat large volumes of contaminated soil.

•    A water-retention product mixed with soil that can reduce water irrigation by 40 per cent.

In the area of waste management, attendees can see revolutionary composting machines that convert organic waste into high-grade compost within 24 hours, as well as powerful hydraulic waste-handling machines suitable for both scrap and timber disposal.

ADSW also features the seventh Zayed Future Energy Prize Award Ceremony and coincides with the Fifth General Assembly of the International Renewable Energy Agency. – TradeArabia News Service
