Dubai Municipality announced that 85% of Dubai Waste Management Centre (DWMC), the world’s largest waste-toenergy project, has been completed.
Located in Dubai’s Al Warsan area, the first-of-its-kind project will convert 45% of the emirate’s municipal waste into renewable energy once complete.
Once fully operational, the plant’s renewable energy, generated from treating waste, will feed the local electricity grid with 215MWh of clean energy.
It will process 2,000 tonnes of solid waste to produce 80MWh of renewable energy at this stage.
The centre will receive around 1,000 truckloads of waste daily, with a capacity to accommodate 88 trucks per hour.
