The Ministry of Environment and Water has completed the first phase of its project to generate energy from solid waste, a senior ministry official said today.

The ministry's Assistant Under Secretary for Environment Affairs, Abdul Rahim Al Hammad, noted, "The Ministry has already finalized a draft document for technical standards, which identifies foundations, requirements and responsibilities of all parties involved."

He further added that the document was agreed to following a series of meetings held by representatives of local authorities involved with the project.

Those at the meetings discussed the criteria and standards for suitable technologies to be utilized in managing waste dumping sites and waste-to-energy plants, and benchmarked them to match international standards and practices.

"The ministry seeks to introduce a new concept for a highly efficient waste management system, with the aim of achieving environmental sustainability, which falls in line with UAE Vision 2021," Al Hammadi said. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates-international/1395279110783.html
