Austrian recycling company Lindner revealed it has been chosen by the Swiss waste-to-energy technology firm Hitachi Zosen Inova, its joint venture partner, the BESIX Group, and the Dubai Municipality for bulk shredding at the world’s largest energy-from-waste plant. The facility is currently being built in Warsan, Dubai.
As part of Dubai’s sustainability strategy, the Dubai Municipality aims to minimise the volume of municipal waste disposed of in landfills, thereby investing into renewable energy facilities. The new plant in Warsan, touted as the biggest of its kind worldwide, is expected to treat 5,555 tonnes of non-recyclable municipal solid waste from the Dubai area per day, converting 1,825 million tonnes into renewable energy annually. The produced electricity will be fed into the local grid as baseload energy and power around 120,000 homes.
Lindner said it welcomes the opportunity to be part of such a sustainable and quality-oriented project. Hitachi Zosen Inova stated that the Urraco 75DK has proven to fulfill all quality requirements with an exceptional price-performance ratio.
