Dubai Municipality plans to build a $544M waste-to-energy plant in Dubai.

The plant, set to become the largest plant in the Middle East to convert solid waste into energy, will be located in Warsan district 2.

According to Eng. Hussain Nasser Lootah, director-general of Dubai Municipality, the project will be implemented over three years.

In its first phase, the plant will receive 2,000t of municipal waste per day to produce 60MW of power.

Essa Al Maidoor, deputy-director of Dubai Municipality, said the waste incineration project is the first of four projects to produce green energy and that the municipality aims to produce 7% of Dubai’s total energy from clean energy sources by 2020.

The plant will be operational in the second quarter of 2020.
