Bee’ah, a leading environmental management company based in Sharjah, UAE has launched a new high-tech, industrial wastewater treatment plant (IWWTP), in an event held at the company’s Waste Management Centre. The launch was attended by H.E Salim Al Owais, Chairman, Bee’ah; H.E Thabit Salim Al Tarifi, Director General, Sharjah City Municipality; H.E Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO, Bee’ah, and other senior dignitaries. Signifying a new milestone in the country’s zerowaste journey, the new plant will be one of the UAE’s first dedicated full cycle treatment facilities for industrial and oil contaminated wastewater, said Bee’ah.
Processing a minimum of 300m3 of wastewater daily, the new facility was established to treat industrial contaminated water and produce clean water that can be returned to the water cycle, with minimum impact on the environment, said the company. The clean water produced from the plant has been certified to be safe for irrigation. Apart from producing clean water, the facility also prevents environmental contamination due to improper disposal of waste water; and supports the UAE’s ambitions in sustainability. The Industrial Waste Water Treatment Plant is said to use the most advanced processes, operating on an intricate five-tiered-system.
“With a waste diversion rate of 75 percent set under the UAE Vision 2021, it is important for us to identify ways to reuse and recover resources as much as possible. Throughout the years, Bee’ah’s integrated waste management strategy has played a pivotal role in raising diversion rates in Sharjah. We are proud to support the launch of this new facility, which will raise these diversion rates even further. We had recently launched a new plant to treat sewage water for use in irrigation and washing cars. We believe these facilities will work in tandem to ensure the continued availability of water resources in Sharjah,” said H.E Thabit Salim Al Tarifi, Director General, Sharjah City Municipality.
