The primary objective of waste management for ANAM is to create a balanced and closed-loop system that enables self-sufficiency, promotes environmental stewardship and supports a culture of recycling and reuse. Therefore the strategies include the design and implementation of:
- Distributed Treatment Systems – as a departure from the traditional centralized systems, this strategy will reduce treatment loads and costs for the city while ensuring infrastructure resiliency.
- Waste-to-Energy systems – The leading method of Waste to Energy is the creation of biogas from human wastewater and organic waste. Converting waste to biomass in order to produce biogas, biofuel, and organic fertilizer not only provides Anam-New City residents renewable energy, but it also reduces the total volume of waste, leading to less money spent for treatment and disposal.
- Land Infill – compressed waste cells will be engineered to safely dispose waste within a land accretion strategy
- Waste Reduction, Recycling & Reuse Programs
