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 Jan.14-17, 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 di­ver­si­ies 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 irst 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 per cent waste di­ver­sion, the plant will di­vert 300,000 tons of waste away from landill ev­ery year, and process it to gen­er­ate up to 30 MW of clean en­ergy.

This fa­cil­ity will also help Shar­jah to be­come the irst zero-waste city in the Mid­dle East by 2021.

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 cer­ti­ica­tion on com­ple­tion. It will also be the irst fully AI in­te­grated ofice in the UAE, set­ting a prece­dent for smart ofices of the fu­ture.
