Middle East Utilities
Veolia, a global leader in optimised resource management and the Royal Commission for Jubail via its investment arm JYIC, have started work for the development of a central utilities and waste valorization plant in the PlasChem Park of Jubail Industrial City.
Designed on a Design-Build-Own-Operate model, the plant will be operational by September 2021. It will feature an incineration capacity of 60,000 Ton per year, along with state-of-the-art technology and environmental compliance based on Veolia’s extensive international experience as a resource management specialist. Veolia is operating 29 hazardous waste incinerator lines world-wide.
Sébastien Chauvin, CEO of Veolia Middle East, said: “Having been present in Saudi Arabia for the last decade, we are excited to continue our contribution towards the country’s sustainability efforts with the development of our waste-to-energy plant in PlasChem Park. Once operational, the facility will be able to safely treat and produce energy from industrial waste sources that can then be offered to companies active in the industrial park.”
Stemming from an agreement signed between Veolia and the Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara) back in December 2018, the sustainable industrial waste-to-energy facility currently in development will be located adjacent to the Sadara Chemical Complex and will receive Sadara waste streams at the opening of the plant.
