World’s Largest Waste-to-Energy Plant to Power Over 135,000 Homes

Dubai’s Warsan Waste Management plant is revolutionizing waste management by converting 45% of the city’s trash into electricity, CNN reported yesterday.

Processing 2 million metric tons of waste annually, the world’s largest waste-to-energy facility generates enough power to supply around 135,000 homes.

The plant’s advanced incineration process achieves a remarkable 34% efficiency, far exceeding industry standards. Sophisticated flue gas treatment filters out harmful pollutants, while the resulting CO2 emissions are offset by the 200 megawatts of fossil fuel-free electricity produced.

Beyond energy, the plant also recycles metals and repurposes ash for construction, minimizing landfill waste. As a sustainable alternative to landfills, this innovative facility is transforming Dubai’s trash into a valuable resource.
