Bee’ah Selects BHS for Sharjah Recycling System

Improvements will increase capacity and diversion

Bee'ah Selects BHS for Sharjah MRF

Sharjah, UAE  – March 09, 2016 – – Bee’ah has selected Oregon, USA-based Bulk Handling Systems (BHS) to design, engineer, manufacture and install a major retrofit to the company’s Sharjah Material Recovery Facility. The facility is currently the largest in the Middle East, with the capacity to process more than 500,000 tonnes of municipal solid waste (MSW) annually. The retrofit, scheduled to be operational in early 2017, will upgrade capacity and automation to increase recovery and total diversion.

BHS will implement its latest and most advanced technologies, including BHS Bag Breakers® and Tri-Disc™ screens, Nihot air separators and NRT In-Flight Sorting® brand optical sorters. BHS Tri-Disc™ screens will replace existing trommel screens to improve separation efficiency, decrease energy consumption and increase throughput. BHS screens will also boost the recovery of organic materials by 50% to 600 tonnes per day. The system’s throughput will expand from 68 tonnes per hour (tph) to more than 75 tph.

Nihot Single Drum Separators will separate heavy items such as bulky metals and inert materials from lighter, high-value recoverables such as fiber and containers. To increase film recovery by 100%, NRT SpydIR® optical sorters are paired with Nihot rotary air separators, creating the FiberPure™ film recovery system. The FiberPure™ will detect and eject film, pneumatically conveying it away from the remaining clean fiber stream. The NRT SpydIR® optical sorter is also being employed to increase PET recovery by 15%. Magnets and an Eddy Current Separator will increase ferrous and non-ferrous recovery by 25%. The BHS Total Control™ controls package will integrate pre-existing and new equipment, empowering the  entire system with advanced SCADA technology.

Commenting on the contract, Daker El Rabaya, MD of Waste Processing, Treatment and Disposal Bee’ah said; “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. This agreement reaffirms BHS’ exceptional reputation as high quality manufacturers and experienced integrators of whole system solutions.”

He added, “We look forward to working closely with our new partners, to support our regional expansion, and significantly improve our MRF capacity to match our operational growth.”

“Over the last decade Bee’ah has set a new standard defining what is possible with an integrated waste management and recycling plan,” said BHS CEO Steve Miller. “Bee’ah’s MRF is one of the largest in the world and yet they made the decision to invest even further.  The technology deployed here will increase automation, throughput and recovery to once again define the new standard.”
