Dubai is constructing a $1.1bn facility that will burn garbage to generate power
The United Arab Emirates is building one of the world’s largest waste-to-energy plants to deal with its growing trash load.
Dubai is constructing a $1.1bn facility that will burn garbage to generate power. A smaller plant – the UAE’s first on a commercial scale – will start operating this year in the emirate of Sharjah. Once two other projects in Abu Dhabi are finished, the country may incinerate almost two-thirds of the household waste it currently produces.
