Place Vendôme Mall in Qatar implements pneumatic waste collection system

by Madaline Dunn

Place Vendôme, a mixed-use mall development located in Lusail, Qatar, has announced that it has implemented a pneumatic waste collection system (PWCS).

The project, covering a total build-up area of 1,150,000 m², has been entrusted to United Developers under the guidance of local investors who are experts in real estate, retail, construction, and contracting.

The PWCS, designed to serve retail, leisure, and entertainment areas, eliminates the need for manual waste transportation at the mall, it shared.

The PWCS uses a network of underground pipes to transport waste directly from the retail outlets and hotels to a central waste collection point and is designed to be environmentally friendly, reducing carbon emissions by up to 90 per cent by eliminating the need for heavy vehicles and plastic waste associated with traditional garbage bags.

The plan is to use Envac’s Automation Platform to boost resource recovery rates by separating general and recyclable waste using a two-fraction system.

Waste will be directed to separate inlets and stored temporarily until a collection cycle is triggered.

Envac’s system, it noted, eliminates the need for waste collection trucks to enter the development and adapts to waste volume during peak times.

“We want to express our sincere appreciation for the excellent partnership with Envac in the Lusail Project over the past year. Place Vendôme Qatar is committed to its guests and tenants, especially during significant events, and the Envac team has consistently delivered the PWCS works with positivity and rapid responsiveness. Envac actively operated the PWCS plant from the Lusail Command and Control Centre during the successful hosting of the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup last year. We want to thank Envac for their ongoing commitment to providing Place Vendôme’s PWCS projects with diligent and competent service. We look forward to continuing this important cooperation in the future, commented Mohamed Hamdi, Head of Operations, United Developers, Qatar.

James Fullerton, Managing Director, Envac Middle East, said: “Incorporating Envac’s technology in Place Vendôme is a testament to the mall’s commitment to sustainability and innovation. The system’s implementation will improve user well-being and ambience, reduce carbon emissions, and enhance resource recovery rates. United Developers and the owners of Place Vendôme are committed to establishing an innovative and sustainable city aligned with Lusail’s broader vision. We are grateful for this fruitful partnership.”
