Dubai Municipality announced that 85 percent of Dubai Waste Management Centre (DWMC), the world’s largest waste-to-energy project, has been completed. With the world’s largest operational capacity, DWMC will process 1.9 million tonnes of waste annually and convert it into renewable energy, generating enough energy to power 135,000 homes upon completion. Construction of the landmark project began in 2021 in an attempt to raise the UAE’s profile as a global model for sustainable development. The first-of-its-kind project will convert 45 per cent of the emirate’s municipal waste into renewable energy once complete, with the first phase of the world’s most efficient energy project will be ready by 2023, while the entire project is scheduled to finish by 2024.
