BHS to aid capacity boost at major UAE facility

United Arab Emirates – Waste management and recycling company Bee’ah of the United Arab Emirates has selected US-based Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) to manufacture and carry out a major retrofit at the company’s Sharjah Material Recovery Facility, due to be completed in early 2017.

Claimed to be the largest facility of its kind in the Middle East, the plant has the capacity to process more than 500 000 tonnes of municipal solid waste annually. BHS will implement its ‘latest and most advanced technologies’, including BHS Bag Breakers and Tri-Disc screens; the latter will replace existing trommel screens in order to improve separation efficiency, decrease energy consumption and increase throughput.

According to the company, the screens will also boost the recovery of organic materials ‘by 50% up to 600 tonnes per day’ while the system’s throughput will expand from ’68 tonnes to more than 75 tonnes per hour’.

Bee’ah’s managing director Daker El Rabaya comments: ‘BHS is selected according to stringent criteria, including technical know-how and manufacturing experience, to ensure their products, methodological knowledge and business strategies match Bee’ah’s high standards.’
