Introducing Plastics Recycling

Matching European Timelines

The Middle East has tremendous potential for the recycling business, and the list of recycling opportunities in the Middle East is limitless! And although in its infancy, the development opportunities are high as the government has accorded the permission to set up recycling plants.

With a provision of long-term predictable regulatory legal framework, there will be enormous investment from the US and Europe.

The local recycling units need to have modern machinery and technical know-how, a sound system and an optimum level of production which is the main goal of the Recycling Zone + Technical Seminar during ArabPlast in 2021!


  • The Middle East shares 35 percent of world's oil production. Gulf petchems industry valued at US$25Bn ie. 12 percent of global market share.
  • Rising population is one of the major components for increase in domestic demand.
  • Industries such as aviation and other transport too constitute to the growning demand.
  • Only 8% is being recycled regionally given the fact that some of the plastic is 100 percent recyclable, like mineral water bottles . By way of recycling process, few companies in the UAE have started to include car tyres to be transformed into jogger tracks and rubber tiles through plastic recycling.
  • Saudi Arbia has the regions highest capacity of petrochemical production which reflects in a high density of plastic waste.
