Veolia Near & Middle East, BEEAH Group, UAE and Masdar, UAE have formed a joint venture to operate and maintain the Sharjah Waste to Energy Plant, the region’s first of its kind at commercial-scale.
The facility, owned by BEEAH Group and Masdar through their joint venture, Emirates Waste to Energy, can process 300,000 tonnes of municipal waste every year while producing 30 megawatts (MW) of low carbon energy, enough to power up to 28,000 homes and offset up to 450,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
Sharjah currently has a 76% landfill waste diversion rate. With the plant now operational, it will enable 100% landfill waste diversion, making Sharjah the first zero waste to landfill city in the Middle East. READ MORE.
