UAE is developing a project that is considered the largest in the Middle East, by converting waste into energy, as part of its efforts to reduce emissions and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
In this context, the Emirates Water and Electricity Company and the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center “Tadweer”, the waste management authority in Abu Dhabi, announced the issuance of a request for proposals for companies and coalitions.
The new plant is to be developed near the Al Dhafra landfill in Abu Dhabi.
Its production capacity for waste treatment reaches 900,000 tons of waste annually, enough to provide electricity to about 52,200 homes in UAE.
This makes it one of the largest waste-to-electricity plants in the region and the Middle East.
The plant is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1.1 million tons annually, equivalent to removing more than 240,000 cars from the road.
Offers at the best standards
“We are pleased to move to the next stage and invite qualified companies to participate in the bids,” said Othman Al Ali, CEO of Emirates Water and Electricity Company.
For his part, Salem Al Kaabi, Director General of the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center “Tadweer”, said that the waste-to-energy plant will be developed according to the independent product model, taking into account the best international standards and practices.
The Emirates Water and Electricity Company had received 109 requests from companies and consortia that expressed their interest in implementing the project.
