AcuComm’s Daily Full Access Project – United Arab Emirates WtE Facility

Development of a US$50 million waste-to-RDF facility

It has been revealed that last week (17th October 2018), the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment (MOCCAE) successfully signed a waste management concession agreement with the shareholders of the newly founded Emirates RDF Company, to develop and operate a new US$50 million waste-to-RDF facility in UAE.

The project forms part of the first phase of the ‘Energy-From-Waste’ scheme launched in the Emirates of Ajman and Umm Al Quwain and this first phase is expected to cost around US$40 million.

Overall, the new facility is expected to convert the waste of 550,000 residents into refuse-derived fuel (RDF); which will be used in cement factories to partially replace the traditional use of gas or coal.

Work on the facility is expected to start in December 2018, with operations starting in April 2020.
