Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) – The Chairman of the National Investment Commission (NIC), Haider Makiya, announced on Saturday that the commission received many requests to carry out waste-to-energy projects.
Makiya illustrated that different techniques can be used to carry out the project, according to the Iraqi News Agency (INA).
The Chairman of the NIC clarified that waste-to-energy projects will free Iraq from the gas and carbon emissions resulting from waste burning, adding that waste can be treated in a scientific manner.
Makiya indicated that specialists from different ministries studied waste treatment projects and came up with important results in terms of the required standards.
The spokesperson of the Iraqi Ministry of Electricity, Ahmed Musa, confirmed last year that the ministry is intending to carry out waste recycling projects in cooperation with the Baghdad Municipality and other governorates.
The Iraqi Electricity Ministry mentioned last July that it is studying possible ways to diversify energy sources in accordance with the directions of the Iraqi government and to use waste recycling to generate electricity.
