Dubai Municipality has announced that it will establish at the end of June the largest plant in the Middle East to convert solid waste into energy at a cost of AED2 billion in Warsan district 2, to achieve the vision of the civic body to make Dubai the most urban, sustainable and smart city by the year 2021.

The move also comes in line with the national agenda to reduce the landfill by 75 percent by 2021, in addition to protecting the environment from methane gas emitted by the landfill.

Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director-General of Dubai Municipality, said that the implementation period will take three years, and the plant will be operational in the second quarter of 2020 during which it will receive 2,000 metric tonnes of municipal solid waste per day in the first phase to produce 60 megawatts.

Engineer Essa Al Maidoor, Deputy-Director of Dubai Municipality, said the waste incineration project is the first of the four projects to produce green energy. He added that Dubai Municipality, in co-ordination with the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, conducted studies to achieve the strategy of Dubai for Clean Energy, to produce 7 percent of Dubai's total energy from clean energy sources by 2020. - Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395296946111.html
