Dubai announced the completion of the Biogas to Energy (Biogas) project, one of the renewable energy projects serving the Dubai Municipality’s strategic plan to make its assets green and sustainable.
The annual amount of electricity generated from this project is 44,250 MW per hour, which will be used to run the Warsan Sewage Treatment Plant at six MW of electricity per day, which is 50% of the total operational requirements. of the station.
The project, completed by Dubai Municipality in partnership with the private sector, falls within the framework of supporting the Dubai Government’s guidelines to implement partnerships with the sector as it contributes to providing sustainable solutions through the discovery of alternative energy sources. , and reduce carbon emissions by 31 thousand tons annually, reducing the plant’s operating costs equal to 320 million dirhams over the next 25 years.

57 thousand cubic meters per day of biogas is produced from treatment processes at Varsan Sewage Treatment Plant and through the project, around 54 thousand 800 cubic meters are used to generate electrical energy at the rate of 121 MW per day. hours, which covers 50% of the station’s requirements. The program is characterized by its fully automated operations with more than 350 instruments monitoring operations 24/7.
The sewage system in the Emirate of Dubai is one of the latest most sustainable infrastructure assets of the Emirate of Dubai, with a length of more than three million meters of network lines, and includes 13 main pumping stations, 110 substations, 56 Rainwater pumping stations.
The system has two wastewater treatment plants, the Warsan plant, with a capacity of 325,000 cubic meters per day, and the Jebel Ali plant, with a capacity of 675,000 cubic meters per day, one of the largest plants with the latest technology. .
“The plan embodies the municipality’s commitment to Dubai’s growth goals and supports its strategic plans to rely on clean energy.”
