Abstract

Waste is an unavoidable product of society, and it is a challenge to realise how to manage significant quantities of different types of waste in a way that has benefits for society, the economy and the environment and governments are facing a formidable challenge in trying to find solutions. Due to the continuous increase in population and the standard of life as well as industrial development, the UAE Government, like others, has the challenge to manage large quantities of different types of waste. Besides, there exists a lack of waste management correlated with business opportunities policies and practices in the UAE. This paper discusses the fact that these challenges can be overcome, resulting in benefits for the society, the economy, and the environment when introducing well-designed waste associated business models to the local and national markets, new waste management model framework correlated with business. Empowering industries to manage waste have been argued as the most innovative and practical approach to waste management strategy set to get businesses to place sustainability at the top of their priority list. This does not only help extend producer responsibility but creates a circular economy that retains the value of materials within the economy. Renowned benefits, therefore, exist for the Emirate of Ajman if industries are empowered to manage waste; these benefits go beyond the reduced level of waste sent to the landfills and incineration sites but have leveraged benefits to the economy as a whole, it is also concluded that the primary factors and practices that possibly can enable the business sectors to recycle and reuse maximum quantity of the total waste produced from the Emirates of Ajman by introducing a comprehensive business development model.
