Edama is the leading company developing organic waste recycling solutions designed specifically for desert climates conditions.
Our journey started in 2017 at KAUST, where we built our first composting pilot facility and since then we have been testing and improving our processes and products taking advantage of the scientific expertise of our team and the fantastic KAUST core-labs facilities.
In 2018, we won the SAAB-funded Taqadam accelerator program competition from a cohort of over 400 start-up teams from all across Saudi Arabia.
In 2019, we expanded our composting operations and established strong relationships with key stakeholders and customer segments.
In 2020, we obtained our seed funding from the KAUST Innovation Fund and secured our first contract for design, build and operate a commercial-scale composting facility with recycling capacity of 5500 tonnes, which will become operational in Q1 2021.
We are now in negotiation with several potential clients including municipalities, farms and food processing industries to expand our operations in Riyadh, Dammam, NEOM, and to the rest of the MENA region.
