Bee’ah opens metal recycling facility
Sharjah, February 20, 2014
Bee’ah, a leading provider of integrated environmental and waste management solutions, has launched an advanced facility featuring the world’s most powerful machine for shredding cars and scrap metal.
The car recycling service is considered to be the first of its kind in the UAE, representing an environmentally-friendly way to dispose of cars while extracting valuable materials.
“Car recycling helps both people and companies to grow, by contributing to saving the environment and its resources,” said Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO, Bee’ah. “Additionally, it returns materials back into the economy cycle.”
The machine, known as the ‘Red Giant’, is considered to be the perfect solution for dealing with tough materials – such as car bodies – in large volume. With a throughput capacity of 200 tons per hour in MSW or 150 tons per hour in C&D, the 44-ton Red Giant is fast and efficient, with tracks to allow for mobility around Bee’ah’s facility.
Bee’ah’s car shredding and recycling facility processes cars and light metal scrap, separating and reclaiming unique metals, glass and plastic. It is also capable of processing wood, plastic, trees, cars, solid building materials, iron and non-iron metals of widths up to 120mm.
It takes just 50-60 seconds for the facility to completely process a car. In line with the new facility’s capabilities, Bee’ah is in the process of establishing agreements with international certified car part remanufacturing facilities in the US and Europe for all parts that are dismantled to be recycled as remanufactured parts that meet the original manufacturers’ specifications.
Bee’ah operates one of the world’s largest landfills in Al Saj’ah, Sharjah. Bee’ah’s center for waste management covers 3.75 sq km, equivalent to approximately 525 football fields. It represents an entirely new way of waste management in the region, featuring a number of the most advanced facilities for material restoration and recycling. – TradeArabia News Service
