Developing world-class waste-to-energy plants in the Middle East by addressing and overcoming landfill, financing and technological issues

Landfills, emissions, plastics, municipal solid waste - WASTE appears to be the new black gold with every country in the Middle East announcing plans to build the biggest waste-to-energy projects in the region. So far, only Qatar’s taken the lead in finalising its waste-to-energy project in the Middle East. Do you know who’s next?

  • Oman is set to establish the Sultanate’s first waste-to-energy project, projected to be worth approximately $600-700 million and is aimed at converting part of the colossal quantities of municipal waste generated daily to produce electricity for seawater desalination with a capacity: 1,000,000 tones per annum
  • Kuwait’s project plans to provide a number of services including treatment using incinerators for generating electricity, and landfilling the ash from the remains of the incineration. The plant is expected to receive 50% of total municipal solid waste produced in Kuwait
  • Jordan has promising biomass energy potential in the form of municipal solid wastes, crop residues and organic industrial wastes
  • Dubai plans to build a $545 million waste-to-energy plant and aims to be largest plant in the Middle East to convert waste to energy by the second quarter of 2020

As the MENA region is expecting to see billions worth of investment in this sector, IQPC have put together the Waste-to-Energy Middle East Conference taking place from 28-29 November 2016 in Muscat, Oman. The event will provide you with an important platform to connect with key stakeholders throughout the value chain including, projects owners, EPC contractors, technology providers, government authorities, municipalities, financial institutions, consultants and more!
