Bee'ah expands operations locally, regionally
Bee'ah operates the world's third largest material recovery facility
UAE-based waste management company Bee'ah, has announced that it has expanded its operations locally and regionally.
Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO, Bee'ah made the announcement on the second day of Green Middle East, the region's premier exhibition for the environment industry.
Founded in 2007 as a public- private partnership, Bee'ah commissioned and operates the world's third largest material recovery facility in Sharjah. The company also operates the Middle East's only cryogenic tyre recycling facility with a capacity of three million tyres per year.
The 'zero emission' waste collection and street cleaning fleet is just one of Tandeef's initiatives in helping Bee'ah become the leading environmental management company in the region by providing coherent and sustainable environmental solutions to meet the challenges of the community it serves.
As well as deploying electric vehicles, Bee'ah also prioritizes the powering of its existing waste collection and haulage vehicles with low sulphur diesel, which helps decrease particulate emissions in the atmosphere, without lowering performance.
The region's first solar-powered cleaning boats are sized to easily manoeuvre around the Mamzar and Khaled Lagoons in Sharjah. They come equipped with a solar roof supplying the energy required to run the two electrical pod-propulsion placed under its hulls. While navigating in a given area, the boats can collect floating waste such as plastics, polystyrene and wood; and stores them on board in a dedicated container with a capacity of two hundred kilogram, which will eventually be taken to the Bee'ah Waste Management Centre for processing and recycling.
"Our skills and expertise are a level at which we can export expertise across the region," said Al Huraimel. "Saudi Arabia is an ideal starting point in our regional expansion strategy due to the Kingdom's similarities to Sharjah in terms of demographics and nature of waste."
