BEEAH Recycling, the pioneering waste processing and material recovery business under BEEAH Group, has launched a new recycling facility aiming to help Sharjah achieve 100 percent landfill waste diversion this year. The C&I recycling facility is the first of its kind in the region, with a robotics and AI system that automatically detects, identifies and separates different types of waste.

It will supplement the waste processing efforts at BEEAH Recycling’s Material Recovery Facility (MRF), which is the largest facility of its kind in the Middle East and the third largest in the world.

BEEAH Recycling is set to enhance efficiency of material recovery and increase landfill waste diversion.

Over ten different types of material will be recovered from the C&I recycling facility, including Aluminium, HDPE, plastic car parts, wood, tyre, PET, polypropylene containers and sacks, paper and carton, metals and mix film. Commercial residue from the C&I recycling facility will be sent to the nearby Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) facility, which was launched by BEEAH Recycling last month. At the SRF, the commercial residue will be transformed into alternative green fuel.

At full operational capacity, the C&I recycling facility will process around 156,000 tonnes of mixed recyclables per year, translating to about 500 tonnes of waste per day.
