Bee’ah, a provider of integrated environmental and waste management solutions located in Sharjah, has unveiled a new machine that will allow the company to shred automobiles and scrap metals. The company says the new facility is part of Bee’ah’s expanded waste management strategy.

Bee’ah says the car recycling service is considered to be the first of its kind in the United Arab Emirates, representing an environmentally friendly way to dispose of cars while extracting valuable materials.

“Car recycling helps both people and companies to grow, by contributing to saving the environment and its resources,” says Khaled Al Huraimel, Bee’ah’s group CEO. “Additionally, it adds materials that would otherwise have gone to waste back into the economy cycle.”

Bee’ah’s car shredding and recycling facility processes cars and light metal scrap, separating and reclaiming metals, glass and plastic. The facility, which weighs 44 metric tons, works on a track so that it can move across distances to shred up to 60 metric tons of car bodies per hour. It also is capable of processing wood, plastic, trees, cars, solid building materials, iron and noniron metals of widths up to 120 millimeters. It takes about one minute for the facility to completely process a car. In line with the new facility’s capabilities, Bee’ah is in the process of establishing agreements to remanufacture car parts.
