United Arab Emirates is a name that almost everyone knows is synonymous to one of the most exquisite and elite tourism destinations around the globe and there’s always something going down in the country to provide a boom to this already huge tourism industry.
United Arab Emirates is known for its amazing festivals and bringing the world together in a single pot which adds to one of the many pros of the nation for the tourism. Now with the world gearing towards a huge transition to clean and green energy and going 100 percent renewable UAE is also making the transition happen and it is all set to promote this new trend and make it a selling point for the nation’s energy sector. A Concert in Dubai UAE is promising to Rock the World but not the planet. The show is being powered by a controversial fuel that some say isn’t so green and clean as it is advertised. Organizers of Rock the World/Save the Planet are marketing their event of November 15th as the first 100% environmentally sustainable rock concert. They say that despite filling the 6,000-seat Dubai Duty Free Stadium, and generating the usual rock and roll pyrotechnics, the concert will leave a net zero carbon footprint. This concert is organized by a Dubai based company that turns waste cooking oils into biofuels to run diesel engines.
Not everyone is sold on the idea. Biofuel is not clean energy stated Amruta Kshemkalyani, a UAE-based sustainability advisor and also he stated that the world needs to understand what greenhouse gas emissions the bio fuel is emitting which is supposed to be used in the concert.
