Dubai’s waste-to-energy plant confirmed for 2023 start

World's largest waste-to-energy project set to commence initial operations in the beginning of 2023

Dubai Municipality says its new Dubai Waste Management Centre (DWMC), the world’s largest waste-to-energy project, is on track to begin its initial operations at the start of next year.

In a statement it explained that two of the centre’s five treatment lines will operate initially, generating 80 Mwh of renewable energy by processing 2,000t of solid waste in a day.

The start-up of the operation in 2023 is step forwards in the Municipality’s aims of reducing the volume of solid waste sent to landfills while creating alternative sustainable energy sources.

“We are in the process of commencing the partial operations of DWMC next year, as we are making promising progress in building the facility, which is 75 per cent complete,”  explained Dawoud Al Hajri, director general, Dubai Municipality.

“DWMC offers an alternative sustainable solution to waste backfilling as well as a clean energy source, making it a significant part of Dubai’s vision to become one of the world’s most sustainable cities. The centre will help to solidify Dubai’s status as a global leader in driving sustainability.”

The first stage of the centre’s operation will involve receiving waste, utilising the resulting steam pressure to operate the steam turbine, and producing enough rotational energy to move the electric generator attached to the steam turbine, generating around 80 Mwh of electrical energy.

Upon completion in 2024, DWMC will be able to process 5,666 tons of solid waste per day via five lines, converting and producing 200 Mwh of clean energy into the local power grid.
