Commenting on the visit, His Excellency Salim Al Owais, Chairman of Bee'ah said: "The United States have experience in addressing environmental issues for many years. We are proud to show the representatives of the U.S. Consulate General the achievements of Bee'ah and are keen to look into the possible collaboration opportunities and exchange of know-how, on our path to reach 100% waste diversion by 2015 for the Emirate of Sharjah."
Mr. Khaled Al Huraimel said: "We are pleased to welcome the representatives of the Consulate General of the U.S. to our Waste Management Centre, and present the state-of-the-art technologies adopted by Bee'ah for the first time in the Middle East, as well as the substantial progress that Bee'ah is making towards its vision to developing clean, efficient waste management and environmental technologies."
The visit offered the United States Consulate General the chance to view Bee'ah's transformation and see the sustainable development programmes embraced by the company, such as the recovery of recyclables of municipal waste, the recycling of tyres as well as construction and demolition waste, the engineered landfill site and the compost plant amongst others.
"It is quite outstanding to see the advancement of the UAE, and Sharjah in particular, to bringing the various waste management solutions to the region today. We are prepared to share our expertise with organisations, such as Bee'ah, on their journey to achieving their zero-waste target by 2015," said Mr. Michael Carney during the visit.
