Waste-to-Energy Power Plant

The greenfield Waste-to-Energy (WtE) Independent Power Project is one of the largest WtE facilities in the region. It will be developed in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Company (Tadweer) to divert waste away from landfills.

The WtE plant, to be located near the existing Al Dhafra landfill in Abu Dhabi, will have an expected processing capacity of 900,000 tonnes of waste per year, and will generate enough electricity to power up to 52,500 UAE households.

The project will involve the financing, construction, operation and maintenance of the WtE plant that will use advanced moving grate technology to convert municipal solid waste into electricity via a high-efficiency steam turbine generator set.
