The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (Aurak) has announced the signing of a deal with UAE-based Al Shrooq Green Energy (ASGE), an expert in municipal solid waste gasification technologies.

The arrangement agrees to bilateral co-operation in terms of sharing expertise, a pilot scaled skid-mounted gasification unit (SMGU), and research on waste-to-power systems developed by ASGE.

The deal will see both Aurak and ASGE collaborating in research fields like syngas conversion to methanol and waste heat recovery. Additionally, the university students will get internship opportunities at the organisation.

The deal will also see the UAE group delivering the pilot gasification unit to RAK Research and Innovation Center to use the sysngas generated from the waste sources in Ras Al Khaimah.

Under the deal, the clean energy group will support RAK research unit for R&D programmes in the areas of mutual interest related to municipal solid waste and bio-solids gasification in the UAE, remarked Prof Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, the university president, after inking the deal with Manoharan Sundaralingam, the chief executive of ASGE in the presence of Prof Mousa Mohsen, the dean of the School of Engineering and director of RAK Research and Innovation Center and Sonia Nasser, the executive director of RAK Waste Management Authority.

This university also has a range of world-class researchers in their respective fields, so we are very excited to work with them. This relationship has great potential.
