Waste To Energy Power Plants

Generic issues with Waste

Generic issues with Landfills

Leachate is a liquid that is formed when the waste decays. Rainfall percolating through the waste will dissolve soluble components of the waste, but leachate will also contain in-solubles such as oils and small particles. It has to be monitored as it can be toxic and cause damage to the surrounding environment if it is not treated correctly.

Leachate production is an inevitable consequence of the landfilling of wastes, it is a process that can last for a number of decades, possibly in excess of 100 years on larger contained sites.

Landfill gas is a by-product generated from the decomposition of biodegradable wastes such as household waste. The major constituents of landfill gas are methane (CH4) and carbon dioxide (CO2).

Typically 45% – 65% of landfill gas is methane. At certain concentrations a mixture of methane or hydrogen may ignite causing fires or explosions.

Our value proposition:

  • Financially sound
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Societally valid
  • Proven

ICONS holds the international distribution and implementation rights for the latest state of the art Waste To Energy (W2E) technology. It is sustainable, non-polluting, profitable & leading edge Green W2E Power Generation utilising unique, innovative & revolutionary technology.

The W2E technology is fully protected by international patents and we will continue to ensure future R&D security and competitive advantages.

In the implementation process ICONS will provide an infrastructure that is distributed to meet community and local needs thereby aiming to increase the efficiency of the electrical power we generate by up to 33% and maximising the potential of the Combined Heat & Power (CHP) capabilities of the installed W2E plants up to 89%.

ICONS will lead the power generation market by being the first to:

  • transform 100% of waste into energy and valuable products;
  • sell all of the products output from the installed W2E plants, as well as;
  • delivering maximum value financially, environmentally, societally and proven.

The above can be delivered in and environmentally friendly landscaped W2E Power Plant layout that integrates perfectly and in full harmony with urban and residential areas as indicated below:

New World Class Exclusive Resort


First International


ICONS FZE – Innovative Concepts & Solutions

to carry out the feasibility study and pre-qualification of contractors and suppliers for the development, construction and management of a World Class Exclusive and Unique Resort Complex to be built in the Uinited Arab Emirates. A go to destination for unparalleled leisure and luxurious living.

The key elements that will identify the project and are also to be considered the milestones for the feasibility study are:

  • Identification of the most appropriate location for erecting the World Class Exclusive and Unique Resort Complex
  • Identification of Innovative Tourism and Marketing concepts
  • Identification of Innovative and attractive investment packages focused on a balanced approach of Real Estate investments, Tourism, Ownership, Cost free living and Eco friendly solutions
  • Utilization of the most modern Green Building Techniques
  • Utilization of zero emission, carbon free and environmental safeguarding technologies
  • Identification of the most appropriate Management organization
  • Identification of eventual local partners
  • Identification, pre-qualification and selection of suppliers, contractors and subcontractors

and any other requirement that ICONS FZE should deem necessary for achieving a state of the art, world class and successful – 5 Star World Class Exclusive and Unique Resort Complex.
