Dubai: Dubai Municipality on Monday announced that 85 per cent of Dubai Waste Management Centre (DWMC), the world’s largest waste-to-energy project, has been completed.

With the world’s largest operational capacity, DWMC will process 1.9 million tonnes of waste annually and convert it into renewable energy, generating enough energy to power 135,000 homes upon completion.

Construction of the landmark project began in 2021, in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to raise the emirate’s profile as a global model for sustainable development and consolidate its position as the best city to live and work in.

DWMC reflects Dubai’s commitment to achieving sustainable development goals and reducing the emirate’s carbon footprint. The project will contribute to Dubai Municipality’s strategic objective of reducing and completely diverting waste from landfills by 2030.
