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.

In the latest edition of our Global Waste Investment Fact File, we switch our focus to Singapore and cover 14 projects in the country. These have a total value of US$3,369 million, an average of US$241 million per project.
Key points from this Fact File:
- Integrated/mixed facilities is the leading project type, accounting for US$2,294 million or 68% of the total. This is followed by incineration (with energy recovery), accounting for US$764 million or 23% of the total.
- The total estimated capacity of these projects is 5.6 million tonnes. This is equal to 399,331 tonnes per project on average and 384% of Singapore’s estimated annual waste generation.
- Waste investments totalling US$3,050 million are expected to become operational over the next few years. This is currently expected to peak in 2019 at US$573 million.

Germany – AD Plant
Construction of an organic waste Kompogas plant
Hitachi Zosen Inova (HZI) is to construct a plug-flow anaerobic digester with gas conditioning at a composting plant owned by Entsorgungswirtschaft Soest.
The facility, located in Anröchte, will process 15,000 tonnes of organic waste annually, producing biogas which will be fed into two cogeneration plants. The composting unit will use any heat produced, while the 3.5 GWh of electricity generated will be enough to supply 1,100 households.
Construction is due to begin in May 2019.

Poland – WtE Facility
Construction of a WtE facility
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) will be providing funding for a new waste-to-energy (WtE) plant in Olsztyn.
Expected to cost around PLN 1.65 billion, the facility will incinerate refuse-derived fuel (RDF) to generate 1,350.7 TJ of energy each year. Hazardous waste produced as a result of the incineration process (fly ash etc.) will be processed at a plant on-site and transferred to a separate waste management facility.
