Dubai Municipality has announced that 62 per cent work on the Dubai Waste Management Centre (DWMC) at Warsan, has been completed.
The project, which on completion will become the world’s largest and most efficient energy project of its kind, is set to contribute immensely to the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050. According to Dubai Municipality, more than 3.8 million working hours were spent to date by 30 companies tapped to carry out contracting, supply, and consulting services.
By 2024, the facility will treat approximately 5,666 tonnes of solid waste across five burning lines daily, with 12,480 air filters to treat all emissions.
The waste will be converted into energy, which will then be utilised to feed the local electricity grid with about 200 MW/h of clean energy, it stated.
