SHARJAH, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News / WAM - 13th Jan, 2019) Sharjah's environment company 'Bee’ah' will be showcasing its innovative ventures at the World Future Energy Summit, WFES, and EcoWaste exhibition, to be held at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, from the 14th to 17th January, 2019, as part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.
In its seventh consecutive participation at the event, the company will demonstrate its ground-breaking projects in renewable energy, sustainable mobility, environmental management and green building.
Commenting on Bee'ah's participation, Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of Bee’ah, said, "As a pioneer for a sustainable quality of life, platforms such as WFES provide us with the opportunity to encourage dialogue and collaborations for the future of sustainability in the UAE. As Bee’ah grows and diversifies its portfolio, we have introduced several new projects that will have a transformative impact on the UAE’s future. We are proud to use this platform to share insights on these projects with our peers and industry leaders, and to demonstrate our commitment to further advancing the achievement of the UAE’s sustainability agenda."
Visitors at WFES will receive exclusive insights into the development of the UAE’s first waste-to-energy plant, which is being built by the Emirates Waste to Energy Company, Bee’ah’s joint venture with Masdar.
Bringing the UAE closer to its Vision 2021 target of 75 percent waste diversion, the plant will divert 300,000 tonnes of waste away from landfill every year, and process it to generate up to 30 MW of clean energy.
The stand will also feature Bee’ah’s iconic new headquarters, a net-zero energy building that epitomises sustainability in design and functionality. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the building is expected to receive a LEED platinum certification on completion. It will also be the first fully AI integrated office in the UAE, setting a precedent for smart offices of the future.
This year’s WFES is of particular significance to Bee’ah, as its joint venture with Crescent Enterprises, ION, has been selected as the official sustainable transport partner for the event. Bee’ah will also be introducing visitors to ION’s innovative green mobility solutions at the WFES.
At the EcoWaste exhibition, Bee’ah and its subsidiary, Tandeef, will be showcasing the latest technologies in waste management. Tandeef will be demonstrating the features of its advanced fleet, smart bins and integrated digital solutions that have maximised speed and efficiency, and minimized the environmental impact of its operations.
