New waste project in Tunisia

Model of the rehabilitated treatment center

To treat and dispose hazardous waste while respecting the environment, the Government of Tunisia, with the support of the German KfW, had set up a national hazardous waste treatment center, which is located in Jradou, Governorate of Zaghouan, with 2 reception, storage and transfer centers in Sfax and Gabes, but - due to different reasons - has been shut down for nearly 10 years.

On 1st September 2018, GKW Consult has been contracted to prepare a study that aims to determine the security measures to be implemented on the Jradou site and to develop technical and organizational solutions with the aim to put the plant into operation again. The project is scheduled to be completed by September 2019.

The services comprise preliminary and technical study, preparation of all documents needed for pre-qualification and tendering procedure, assistance in tendering procedures, tender evaluation as well as preparation of an evaluation report including recommendations of selected contractors, site supervision of works and rehabilitation.
