The United Arab Emirates is engaged in the production of energy from waste using innovative technologies !
Mohamed Ayachi AJROUDI, chairman of the board of directors of CNIM Middle East, based in Abu Dhabi, said that the UAE is entering the fast pace of the production of residual energy and that they are continuing their unilateral approach by transforming the challenges into economic benefits as well as its unique approach to transforming challenges into sustainable economic, social and environmental opportunities and returns, since waste is a huge asset and a great asset in the Arab countries and will play a major role in saving energy in in the coming years, in addition to being a key pillar for reducing climate pollution.
Mohamed Ayachi AJROUDI also stressed that the UAE approach to harnessing the electrical energy from waste is an important step in achieving the objectives of the national agenda for the UAE vision for 2021, while the volume of the waste sector in the world exceeds 700 billion stressing that European countries buy garbage for energy production, like Germany and Italy.
Plastic waste comes third after natural gas and crude oil in the production of electricity.
Mohamed Ayachi AJROUDI also declares that CNIM has 400 factories worldwide to produce used electricity, notably in Singapore, Japan, America, Europe and China, and uses processing techniques such as sorting and the recycling of materials and the production of organic fertilizers in addition to producing electricity of 50 to 60 megawatts helping to meet current and future needs and the elimination of materials resulting from the combustion of fuel.
He also explained that the recycling of mixed solid waste or agricultural and food industry waste is the largest source of renewable energy on the ground and represents a booming economic sector with high yields and low cost in plus positive feedback on the environment and the economy.
He also pointed out that Europe has large-scale plans to generate energy from waste using thermal decomposition technology. A study by the company “Conseil du Golfe” has estimated that the volume of solid waste in GCC cities is around 80 million tonnes per year.
Finally, he noted that UAE awareness campaigns for a waste-free environment play a very important role.
According to the World Bank, more than half of the world’s population suffers from a lack of regular garbage collection services.
