“Over the past years, we have launched many awareness campaigns among students, through which we have highlighted the conversion of waste into clean energy. We also partnered with one of the largest culinary institutes in Dubai by equipping them with our latest global solutions for food waste treatment. We also installed solutions related to hot water for cooking and beverage purposes to ensure that users are receiving hot water free of any residues very quickly and from a reliable source,” Karam added.
Karam stressed that the company will fulfill its commitments and will continue to launch more awareness campaigns among students. It will also assist educational and health institutions in managing their daily food waste by sponsoring the installation of food waste treatment solutions in designated places and training students to use them while ensuring that these solutions will improve their operational efficiency

It also provides cleaner and more sterilized spaces, as food waste is one of the most prominent sources that produce unpleasant odors and intensifies the spread of germs and harmful bacteria that affects the health of people.
