Following the signing of the MoU, Fahad added, “At Dubal Holding, we are always working to foster sustainable technologies in order to facilitate the UAE’s ambition to achieve a circular economy. This MoU is an important step that comes as part of our efforts to explore new avenues which will boost the nation’s economy and overall development in the sustainability sector.”
