The global trend of increasing urbanisation and higher disposable income being directly proportional to increase in per capita waste generation has been mirrored in the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC) countries as well. The increasing volume and complexity of waste is posing a threat to the ecosystem and human health. At the current rate, Global Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Generation volumes are likely to nearly double by 2025.

The GCC countries stand out in terms of lavish lifestyles, unsustainable consumption levels, rapid urbanisation, and rapid growth in population. Owing to this, the total volume of the waste generated in the GCC is likely to touch 130 Million Tonnes in 2014 at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.7 per cent from 2009 to 2014.

As per recent Frost & Sullivan analysis, one of the key factors driving the market for waste management services is the shift to alternative integrated waste management solutions and Waste-to-Energy (WTE). However, WTE is an emerging market in the GCC with only 0.25-0.3 terrawatt-hours (TWh) of energy being produced from waste in the countries presently. Qatar is the first GCC country to implement WTE on a large scale with its Domestic Solid Waste Management Centre (DSWMC) successfully deploying a WTE plant with a capacity to generate 50 Megawatt (MW) of electricity.

These facts, along with other similar insights on the WTE market in the Middle East, were presented in an exclusive Frost & Sullivan Whitepaper titled, ‘Middle East Waste Management Market: Transforming Liability Into Value' at EcoWASTE 2014. Kumar Ramesh, Industry Manager, Environment and Building Technologies Practice, Middle East and North Africa, Frost & Sullivan also moderated a panel discussion on WTE at the prestigious 7th World Future Energy Summit.

Speaking specifically about the United Arab Emirates (UAE) waste management market, Kumar Ramesh said,"Waste-to-Energy is an emerging market in the GCC and has immense potential owing to the high waste generation per capita and high population growth rate. A well-managed WTE mechanism can reduce up to 90 per cent of the waste going to landfill. The GCC countries' policies, interests in looking towards renewable energy, and reducing dependence on fossil fuel, along with constant public pressure and urbanisation, are driving the WTE market, which has witnessed 20-25 per cent growth in the past three years. With more projects on the anvil, and the UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), and Qatar announcing multi-billion dollar investment plans towards improving waste management services, this growth trend is likely to attract more WTE technology providers to the region. This would present more opportunities for both domestic waste management service providers and international technology companies to come together and offer customised and reliable solutions based on the region's requirements.

Based on government reports and announcements of upcoming projects, Frost & Sullivan estimates that the WTE projects in the GCC will produce between 300 MW-500 MW of power by 2020. This is approximately 10 times the current WTE production estimates.

Amongst the GCC countries, the KSA has the most ambitious renewable energy target of 25 Giga Watt (GW) of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), 16 GW of solar Photo Voltaic (PV), 9 GW of wind, 3 GW of WTE, and 1 GW of geothermal by 2032.

The WTE target capacity of the KSA is followed by Abu Dhabi and Kuwait. While the Abu Dhabi National Energy Company (TAQA) has announced plans to convert municipal WTE and produce 100 MW of electricity, the Kuwait Partnerships Technical Bureau, in collaboration with the Kuwait Municipality, has invited interested international and regional companies to develop a 3000 Tonnes per Day (TPD) of solid WTE project facility in the Kabd area.
