SAFEEN, a subsidiary of Abu Dhabi Ports, used a specially designed boat to net 120 tons of floating sea debris in Abu Dhabi waters in 2018, and subsequently recycled ten tons of the rubbish that included plastic, wood, ropes and fishing net, all of which can wreak havoc on the natural marine environment.

Acting CEO captain Adil Banihammad said: 'The establishment of the Environment and Anti-Pollution Department at Safeen, under the Marine Services Directorate back in 2015, demonstrates Abu Dhabi Ports' utmost priority to protect the environment, attain sustainability and preserve marine resources and life.



'The department coordinates joint actions with all parties involved in protecting the environment and the marine life, particularly coral and sea turtles and organises awareness campaigns about the hazards of throwing waste in the sea,' Mr Banihammad revealed.



He added: 'We are committed to the continuous improvement, efficiency and performance of the department by running periodical training and drills to ensure the readiness of staff and equipment at all times.'



Safeen has the resources and tools necessary for treating and containing level-one oil spills, according to the criteria of the International Petroleum Industry Environmental Conservation Association (IPIECA).
