micro-WTE provides an innovative decentralized waste-to-energy (WTE) system for a target market of existing and future residential, commercial and educational buildings in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) and United Arab Emirates (UAE). The company’s product offers a novel solution to the economical, logistical and environmental challenges linked to municipal solid waste disposal as well as high energy expenditures associated with providing cooling demand and domestic hot water requirements for these facilities. The added value of such a system is not only to eliminate solid wastes but also to increase the energy independence of the target market. micro-WTE introduces the idea of decentralizing incineration plants into micro incineration systems. WTE systems are modularized to enable in-situ waste disposal and are highly suitable for markets in densely populated countries with hot and humid climate.
