Dubai, 2 March 2022: A Greek delegation of journalists visited the evogreen Alternative Raw Material facility in Sharjah, where maritime and marine-related hazardous waste is being transformed into industrial-grade alternative materials for circular economy. The facility is the first project of evogreen, a joint venture between Polygreen and BEEAH. The 11 Greek journalists learned about the evogreen facility, located within BEEAH Recycling’s award-winning waste management complex, and its importance in helping realise a zero-waste future and the larger circular economy.
The journalists were briefed about BEEAH’s vision for a circular economy across the UAE and the wider region, which has driven the organisation’s growth into a leader in waste management and pioneer for sustainability in the Middle East. Imran Gill, CEO of Polygreen Middle East, discussed evogreen’s importance in tackling the pressing issue of marine pollution, utilising innovative marine and environmental management solutions as well as advanced waste processing.
The delegation went on a tour of the waste management complex and visited the evogreen Alternative Raw Material facility, where they saw the unique methods being used to treat contaminated metals and hazardous industrial waste. Recovered materials are then used to produce alternative materials for industrial use, promoting a circular economy and helping keep oceans clean.
