BEEAH Group opens new recycling facility to produce alternative green fuel from waste

WAM: BEEAH Recycling, a waste processing and material recovery business under BEEAH Group, has added a new Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) facility to its state-of-the-art, integrated waste management complex in Al Sajaa, Sharjah.

The SRF facility will transform commercial residue waste into a high-quality alternative green fuel in cement factories, where the fuel will be injected into the kilns during production.

The facility is among ten other recycling facilities managed and operated by BEEAH Recycling that have so far contributed to a 76% landfill waste diversion in the emirate, the highest in the Middle East. The addition of the SRF facility is expected to help further increase landfill waste diversion in Sharjah.

Speaking about the new facility, Daker El-Rabaya, CEO of BEEAH Recycling, said, “This recycling facility realised the twin benefit of reducing carbon emissions for the cement production industry, while increasing landfill waste rate diversion. It is a huge leap forward for our recycling business, which has been focused on working towards a circular economy and zero-waste to landfill. Now, we are furthering our impact by producing specialised green, alternative fuels.”

“BEEAH Recycling has always aimed to set a new standard for integrated zero waste solutions, pioneering recovery of valuable material from virtually all types of waste in the region. Through advanced recycling techniques, we are shaping a circular economy and demonstrating that it is not only environmentally beneficial but also financially viable. The SRF facility follows a purely commercial model that is fully independent of gate fees,” El-Rabaya added.
