DUBAI, Dubai Municipality opened tenders for the Middle East's largest solid waste-to-energy plant.

The facility is in line with Dubai Vision 2021 and the UAE Vision 2021 National Agenda that will effect 75 percent reduction in the emirate's landfills by 2021, in addition to protecting the environment from methane gas emitted by landfills.

The plant, to be operational by the first quarter of 2020, will receive 2,000 metric tonnes of solid waste a day and produce 60 MW.
