, March 17, 2020

The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) has reviewed the best practices in the operations of factories, operational efficiency as well as waste to energy in Dubai, drawing maximum benefit from alternative energy and by reducing waste.
At a meeting chaired by Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of  DSCE and in the presence of Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the DSCE, the participants discussed several topics, including a presentation by Emirates Global Aluminium on operating its H-Class turbine at Jebel Ali, which has one of the latest technologies for reducing fuel consumption and carbon emissions with a high operational efficiency. 
The power plant is expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from energy generation in the facilities of Emirates Global Aluminium in Jebel Ali and reducing carbon emissions in general.
Ahmad Buti Al Muhairabi, Secretary-General of the DSCE attended the meeting along with board members Dawood Al Hajiri, Director-General of Dubai Municipality; Abdulla Jassem bin Kalban, Managing Director of Emirates Global Aluminum; Saif Humaid Al Falasi, CEO of Emirates National Oil Company, ENOC; Waleed Salman, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Nuclear Energy Committee; and Frederick Chemin, General Manager of Dubai Petroleum.
"We have reviewed the best practices in operations. This supports the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to enhance the shift towards a sustainable green economy. This also supports the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, to provide 75 per cent of Dubai’s total power output from clean energy sources and make Dubai the city with the lowest carbon footprint in the world by 2050," said Al Tayer.
The meeting also discussed the Dubai Waste Minimisation Strategy, through sorting and recycling, which reduced waste at Dubai Municipality's, DM, landfills, a WAM report said.
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, DEWA, collaborates with DM in a project to treat all types of solid waste by using direct burning technologies to generate thermal energy and convert it into clean electrical energy and export it to the grid. The plant has the highest thermal efficiency in solid waste treatment, which achieves Dubai’s strategies.
"We have discussed the upcoming stage of the Waste to Energy project. It is expected to treat 5,500 tonnes of DM’s solid waste and produce 200 megawatts of electricity by 2022," said Al Muhairabi -- Tradearabia News Service.
