Bee’ah and Polyeco have built an advanced Alternative Raw Material facility in the waste management complex at Al Sa’jaa, Sharjah, which will be operational this month, the company announced. Both entities are also joining hands to explore future collaboration in waste management solutions for marine pollution as per the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships (MARPOL), of which the UAE is a signatory.
The new facility will treat and process maritime waste and marine-related hazardous waste. The zero-waste process produces a byproduct of alternative raw materials and the two companies will explore other areas of possible collaboration in maritime pollution such as oil spill response services and green ship recycling, according to the press statement.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Polyeco in order to develop sustainable solutions for alternative raw materials across a variety of industries, while addressing the issue of marine pollution,” said HE Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of Bee’ah.
“The alliance highlights the importance of teamwork to broaden our focus for evolving environmental challenges and demands,” said Athanasios Polychronopoulos, Executive Chairman of Global Operations of Polyeco.
A comparative conformance study has been undertaken by international accredited registrar and classification organisation, DNV GL, to ensure that the Alternative Raw Materials facility conforms to international benchmarks and replicates the success of Polyeco’s facilities in Greece, as per the statement.
