The Mayor of Amman, Dr. Yousef Al Shawarbeh, stressed the need to adopt innovative ideas and initiatives that contribute to the better management of waste within the city of Amman to serve the public interest of the city and its citizens.

Shawarbeh reiterated that the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) is working on the optimal investment of solid waste through the production of electric energy, which is likely to start next February in producing 5 megawatts per hour of electrical energy from waste after the supply of electricity generators that will work on biogas in the Ghabawi landfill.

He added that the process of generating energy from waste will contribute to the treatment of gases generated from the waste and thus reduce the amount of greenhouse gases like methane.
