, a regional leader in people and environmental solutions, has been recognized for its ‘Bulb Eater’ initiative at the 2017 Dubai Airport Safety Awards.
The ‘Bulb Eater’, which won the ‘Best HSE project’ category at the ceremony, was developed in response to the large amount of used light bulbs that were being disposed of at Dubai Municipality hazardous waste treatment facilities. Some of the risks associated with this disposal method include soil, air and water contamination, as well as adverse effects on greenhouse gases.
Since its introduction, the ‘Bulb Eater’ has helped to reduce manual handling and transportation of used light bulbs, and filtered and neutralized mercury vapours. Indeed, through the first half of this year, between the months of January and July, 4700 KG worth of used light bulbs from Dubai Airports
were disposed of, with the number of waste removal trips reduced to as little as one per month.
“This is testament to the increasingly important role we’re playing in the country’s waste management space. We believe we have an important contribution to make in promoting initiatives that encourage people and companies alike to recycle waste – and so we’re thrilled that Dubai Airports have seen the impact that the likes of ‘Bulb Eater’ can have,” said David Stockton, Managing Director at Dulsco.
Dulsco were also finalists in three other categories at the recent ceremony – including ‘Overall excellence in HSE’, ‘Excellence in HSE training’, and ‘Best HSE promotional event’.
