Glimpses of the UAE
The Bee’ah headquarters was designed by the renowned architect, Dame Zaha Hadid. Located in the desert, its dune shapes reflect the environment but at night, it looks quite different when lit up. As Bee’ah is a pioneer in the region in environmental management, sustainability is a key feature of their new headquarters. The structure can have zero emissions and runs on solar power. It is also AI-enabled with many advanced smart features. As well as collecting and recycling household waste, Bee’ah treats and recycles construction waste, tyres, marine waste, medical waste and many other materials. Sharjah’s goal is zero waste with non-recyclable materials being incinerated to produce energy at the new Waste to Energy plant in Sharjah in a joint project with Masdar. Around 75% of waste is currently being diverted from landfill.
