  • Sustainable development opportunity – reduction of greenhouse gas UAE commitment to sustainable development

Here's what Anita Nouri, CEO and Business Development Director of Green Energy Solutions & Sustainability (GESS), revealed us ahead of the workshop:

Saudi Arabia generates more than 15 million tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW).  Is recycling and reuse enough? At The Big 5 Saudi I will address the topic “Harnessing Waste Energy – Renewable Energy” and explore how we can bring value to the mountains of waste buried in our landfills.  
Bold steps need to be taken and legislation needs to be put into place.  We need to disrupt the normal to create the innovation required to make the changes.  All landfills need to be degassed and that gas can provide power to support the recycling facility or industry close to the landfill.  Landfill gas power generation is a stable base load power that must be part of the renewable energy mix and part of the aggressive targets that have been set to reduce our environmental impact. 
Waste is inevitable: we live in wasteful society where everything is replaceable.  If we can make life simpler and be a little thoughtful, the small changes multiplied can make an impactful difference. 
Saudi Arabia is taking bold steps toward renewables and GESS is excited to be a part of this movement.
