Solar Landfill Project

Solar Landfill

Emirates Waste to Energy Company is investing in other renewable energy projects such as solar farms atop closed landfills.

In 2021, Emirates Waste to Energy Company announced that it would undertake a pioneering project to develop the UAE’s first solar landfill project. This solar photovoltaic project will comprise up to 120 megawatts and will be constructed on top of BEEAH Group’s Al Saja’a landfill. Delivered across three phases, the project’s first phase is slated for completion in 2023.

Overview of the project

Emirates Waste to Energy Company is also investing in other renewable projects such as solar farm atop closed landfills.

Finding productive uses for closed landfills is a global industry issue due to stringent environmental monitoring and remediation requirements that can take up to 30 years. Redeveloping the landfill into a solar farm will add to Sharjah’s renewable energy generation, and it is also economically and environmentally beneficial.
