The World’s largest waste-to-energy project in Dubai is 85 percent complete!!
Once fully operational, the plant will feed the local electricity grid with 215MWh of clean energy, which would roughly power 135,000 homes for a whole year!
I mean of course, I’m happy for all those living in Dubai but seriously here in the UK we should be doing something about our waste. Do you know that the UK will be shipping rubbish to Dubai to burn into energy and then sell it back to us? Meaning we will be not only paying for the shipping cost but buying back our own rubbish!
Dubai Municipality stated that the project, whose development started in 2021, is proceeding as planned. The entire project is expected to be finished by 2024, with the first phase being finished by 2023.
The Dubai Garbage Management Company (DWMC), which is based in Al Warsan, will help the Dubai Municipality achieve its strategic goal of totally removing waste from landfills by 2030. Once finished, the most effective energy project in the world will turn 45 per cent of the emirate's municipal garbage into clean energy.
When the plant is fully operating, 215MWh of clean energy from the treatment of trash will be fed into the local electrical grid. By the beginning of 2023, the centre will begin its initial operations through two of its five treatment lines. At this point, it will process 2,000 tonnes of solid trash to generate 80 MWh of renewable energy.
Come on UK when are we going to do the same? Who in the country oversees sustainability?
How do I get a meeting in no.10 to present some ideas for how to save the UK and help with waste to energy?
