#Editors’Pick – Hazardous liquid waste treatment and gasification facilities

UAE: Development of a hazardous liquid waste treatment plant
Dubai Municipality and Veolia have signed a contract to enhance the capabilities of a hazardous liquid waste treatment plant. The agreement is a first of its kind in the UAE, and aims to make Dubai ready for the anticipated increase in the quantity of hazardous liquid waste, as existing industries expand and new ones are set up.

The plant is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2017 and will be able to treat 200 cubic metres of hazardous liquid waste, including acidic waste, alkaline waste, oily waste and wastewater.

UK: Construction of a waste oils-to-biofuel raw materials plant
Argent Energy has developed a £75 million facility to convert waste oils and fats into methyl ester for biodiesel fuel production at Ellesmere Port, near Chester.

Commissioning took place in mid-2016 and on 18th October 2016, the Environment Agency issued a permit for the facility to operate. The site, which is the first of its kind in Europe, receives and processes 90,000 tonnes per year (tpy) of non-hazardous waste fats, oils and greases, and 26,000 tpy of non-hazardous tallow. The waste will generate up to 75,000 tpy of methyl ester, which will be sent off-site for further recovery as biodiesel.
