Egypt and the UAE Team Up For a Waste Management Deal That May Just Change Everything
The leading UAE-based sustainability pioneer, Bee’ah, was appointed in a signing ceremony with the Administrative Capital for Urban Development (ACUD) as the waste management and city cleaning partner for the new Administrative Capital in Egypt. Operations at the Administrative Capital will commence next March, with the target of achieving an 80 percent waste diversion from landfill rate through holistic and integrated waste management solutions in the city.
Bee’ah’s zero-waste strategy in the UAE has led to the highest waste diversion rate in the Middle East for Sharjah at 76 percent, and it is building the Middle East’s first waste-to-energy facility. The company’s diversified ventures span industries such as renewable energy, sustainable transportation, consultancy, and digitalization.
To achieve these ambitious targets, a workforce of over 1,000 will serve an estimated 2 million people in the first phase of the city’s development. The team will utilize WastePro+, the region’s first fully integrated digital solution to track and monitor waste throughout the entire waste cycle in real-time, increasing efficiencies and resource-savings.
This marks Bee’ah’s Middle East and North Africa region expansion. Bee’ah also expanded into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia this year, where it presently serves 1.2 million people in Madinah City.
