Phoenix Energy Area General Manager, Rabih Osta, addressed the waste crisis in Lebanon and waste-to-energy solutions during a conference organized by the Lebanese Order of Engineers. The event, under the patronage of H.E. Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri, took place at the Four Seasons Hotel in Beirut, Lebanon on 7 March 2017.
Osta shared waste facts and figures in Lebanon and highlighted the various types of solid waste, including municipal, medical, and industrial waste. With a population of 5.6 million in Lebanon and over 1 million tourists visiting annually, Lebanon generates approximately 2.04 million tons of municipal solid waste per year. Osta explained how waste-to-energy technologies can positively impact the environment.
This conference falls in line with Phoenix Energy’s on-going environmental sustainability objective to spread awareness about renewable energy. Supplying effective waste-to-energy solutions support the UN’s sustainable development goals: SDG11 Sustainable Cities & Communities and SDG12 Sustainable Consumption & Production.
