Dubai Crown Prince inaugurates world's largest waste-to-energy facility worth AED4 billion

DUBAI – Crown Prince Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, phase of the Waste to Energy Centre in Warsan, the world’s largest and most efficient waste-to-energy plant.

Featuring advanced technologies that do not have any adverse environmental impact, the facility was built at a cost of AED4 billion.



Shaikh Hamdan bin Mohammed said Dubai continues to accelerate its transition to a green economy by building a world-class clean energy infrastructure.

“The start of the operations of the Waste to Energy Centre in Warsan takes Dubai another step closer to achieving its strategy to create the world’s best sustainable ecosystem. We are committed to building a better future for future generations by ensuring our ambitious economic development programmes maintain the highest standards of sustainability and environmental preservation,” said HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed.

“The new Waste to Energy Centre has a comprehensive, eco-friendly waste management system that integrates global sustainability benchmarks,” His Highness added.

Two of the plant’s five lines have been operationalised, which currently process about 2,300 tonnes of solid waste daily. The sophisticated process employs steam pressure to create rotational energy that powers the generator to produce electricity. At present, the facility generates about 80 MWh of renewable energy. With the opening of its second phase, the facility’s output is set to expand to 220 MWh, which translates to 5,280 MWh daily.

The facility has the capacity to treat around 2 million tonnes of solid waste annually to generate power that can meet the needs of more than 135,000 housing units. Built on an area of 400,000 square metres, the Centre has five production lines that have the capacity to treat 5,666 tonnes of waste per day.
