Urban waste generation from the Gulf region has crossed 150 million tons per year, with more than 2 Kg per person each day in some countries, making the region the world’s largest waste producers in terms of per capita waste generation.
Addressing this issue, the Enerwaste Summit is taking place from 31 March - 3 April 2013 in Doha, Qatar to highlight how waste-to-energy power plants can help meet the region’s rising electricity demand and reduce the amount of waste being deposited into landfills.
Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) recently signed an agreement to build the world’s largest waste-fuelled power plant. This plant, the first of its kind in the United Arab Emirates, is part of an initiative to drastically reduce the amount of rubbish buried within landfills in the desert. Additionally, Qatar is investing heavily in their Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre (DSWMC), which treats waste and supplies electricity to the grid in Qatar. Other countries in the region, including Egypt and Bahrain, are also in the process of planning waste-to-energy plants.
In light of these developments, this inaugural summit is bringing together industry experts to discuss upcoming as well as current projects and cover technical aspects ranging from the design to operation of these plants. Other key topics include:
- Developing a framework to support upcoming waste-to-energy projects
- Implementing green technologies reduce the environmental impact of waste-to-energy conversion
- Recycling Municipal and other Solid Waste to generate electricity
- Understanding the importance of reducing waste and waste segregation
