  • UAE set to add 571MW biomass capacity in waste-to-energy push, says BMI
The UAE is expected to develop its waste-to-energy (WtE) sector, driven by the government's goal to reduce landfill waste. The country currently has six out of eight WtE projects in the region, with a total capacity of 571 MW. The Sharjah Waste to Energy plant, for example, has successfully generated electricity and reduced landfill emissions. Research firm BMI has increased its forecast for biomass capacity in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, with the UAE leading the expansion with large WtE projects.
