In keeping with its mandate of adopting sustainable practices, Bee’ah understands that the use of renewable energy sources is pivotal to the preservation of natural resources and for the reduction of pollution levels. To this end, Bee’ah has discovered ways to leverage the benefits of clean energy through solar power generation and by maximizing efficiency in waste-to-energy conversion.
Waste-to-Energy Bee’ah holds ownership of the region’s first, and the world’s largest, gasification plant. The plant has the capacity to process around 160,000 tons of non-recyclable waste annually, generating a gross output of 35 MW of energy, which can be used to power around 50,000 homes. This project provides clean energy to address Sharjah’s growing energy needs, while reducing dependence on fossil fuels and minimizing the emission of greenhouse gases.
In confirmation of Bee’ah’s commitment to exploring alternative energy sources, the company has entered into a partnership with Masdar, to develop a new waste-to-energy facility, which will incinerate up to 35 tonnes of solid waste, per hour. The power produced by this facility, will be added to that produced by Bee’ah’s gasification plant, to supply a total of 90 MW of green energy, to the Sharjah electricity grid.
