Emarat provides livelihoods for thousands of staff and their families. Our network is making an ever-greater contribution to communities that benefit from an enriched value chain and shared economic growth.
It’s our duty to have a meaningful and lasting impact on the lives we touch. We are governed by respect for UAE society, for our natural environment, and the people we serve. We operate in accordance with all national and international environmental and HSE standards and reinvest in technologies and infrastructure to ensure we operate in the cleanest and most responsible way possible.
Our fuel stations feature a number of energy-efficient systems and water conservation measures that help to reduce the impact on the environment. These include:
This revolutionary system is able to overcome the constraints of traditional solar thermal techniques by capturing more energy from the sun as well as from wind, rain or air through natural convection. This means it can also work at night with greater energy efficiency.
Emarat supports the UAE’s drive for energy conservation and reducing the carbon footprint. Emarat will install solar PV systems in its 40 existing filling stations and 25 new filling stations. The first project will be rolled out in December 2020.
All Emarat stations are equipped with an Automatic Tank Gauging System (ATGS), an electronic device that monitors a tank’s fuel level. This ensures the integrity of fuel products while preventing inventory loss and environmental damage in case of a leak. The ATGS ensures that enough product is available and automatically alerts staff in case of a leak or when it is time to reorder.
Refilling a station’s underground storage tanks and individual vehicles leads to the displacement of petrol vapor in a volume equal to the fuel being transferred. This escaping vapor contains benzene, xylene, toluene, and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which contribute to air pollution. New Emarat stations are designed with Vapor Recovery Systems to reduce vapor loss.
