sustainable waste management in Egypt

Sharjah-based waste management company BEEAH Group and Green Planet, Egypt’s environmental services company, have formed a partnership to deliver a ten-year contract in Sharm el-Sheikh.

The two entities will implement waste management strategies that align with Egypt’s sustainability agenda, such as deploying waste management infrastructure, waste collection solutions and recycling services. They will also carry out on-ground activities to foster a culture of recycling and proper waste disposal among communities, which will also drive utilisation of the waste management services and infrastructure, official news agency WAM reported.

The waste collection services would include recycling used cooking oil, which would help minimise burden on public plumbing infrastructure arising from used cooking oil disposal through pipes and drains.

As per the contract, BEEAH Group and Green Planet will deploy used cooking oil deposit machines throughout the city, while thousands of special used cooking oil collection bottles will be distributed among residents. Filled bottles can be deposited into the used cooking oil machines.

The development comes ahead of Cop27, which will be held in Sharm el-Sheikh, between November 6-18, 2022.

“Over the next decade, in partnership with Green Planet, our goal is to scale up services, build on zero-waste to landfill strategies, and help shape Sharm El-Sheikh into a sustainable, smart city of the future,” said Khaled Al Huraimel, group CEO of BEEAH Group.

“We look forward to working with the South Sinai Governorate and environmental affairs institutions to enhance waste management infrastructure in Sharm El Sheikh,” added Dr. Mohamed Asaad, chairman of the board of directors of Green Planet. “In collaboration with BEEAH Group, we will launch an awareness campaign that aims to educate the city’s residents about the importance of preserving marine and desert environments, as well as natural resources.”

The contract with Sharm el-Sheikh is the BEEAH Group’s second in Egypt. In 2020, the group signed the Middle East’s largest waste management contract with the New Administrative Capital, which targets a landfill waste diversion rate of 80 per cent.
