As a result of the influx of Syrian refugees, the population of Amman, the capital of Jordan, has almost doubled since 2011. The new arrivals have all but overwhelmed the city’s existing infrastructure, municipal services, schools, and other sectors.

A total of JOD 87 million (€ 108 million) of EBRD loans and grants by donors to the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) are helping improve the city’s infrastructure and financing the construction of a Landfill Gas Recovery (LFG) system at the main landfill site in Ghabawi, serving the capital as well as Zarqa and Ruseifah.

The project is supported by the United Kingdom, the European Union, Taiwan ICDF and the donors to the SEMED MDA (Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Taipei China).

Since the Syrian refugees influx to Jordan, waste produced has been increased by 35% from 2,850 tons per day to 3,850 tons per day

The project objective is to decrease Jordan dependency on imported energy by transferring waste to electricity 

By 2020 the landfill will produce 5 megawatt of electricity which will be enough to power 20,000 inhabitants
