In United Arab Emirates, Construction Week Online reports that dairy company Al Rawabi’s large-scale biogas facility is now operational. A first of a kind project in the Middle East, the plant will recycle organic waste from Al Rawabi’s operations into clean energy and the facility will generate 1.3 MW of green energy. The biogas facility’s sustainable operations will also yield other benefits, such as the production of highly concentrated organic fertiliser (approximately 10 tons per day) and 150 cubic metres of water per day.
“As responsible sustainable company, Al Rawabi now secures a valuable part of its energy consumption from renewable sources by recycling the organic waste into clean fuel. Moving to green energy puts us one step closer to a cleaner, more environmentally friendly operation. Investing in this project is not only great for the planet, but also economical and makes sense from a business perspective,” HE Abdallah Sultan Al Owais, Chairman, Al Rawabi told Construction Week.
