Dubai is planning to build a $680M waste-to-energy plant capable of treating around 5,000 metric tons daily and generating enough power to run 120,000 homes, which is as much power “as 2,000 skyscrapers as big as the Burj Khalifa could consume – roughly two percent of Dubai’s annual electricity consumption”.

Dubai is partnering with Switzerland-based waste-to-energy technology company Hitachi Zosen Inova and Belgian construction company BESIX on the project, which is expected to be operating before the long anticipated World Expo 2020.
