                             Bee'ah Launches Region's First

                               Solar Energy Landfill Project


         Bee’ah,  the  Middle East’s  leading
         sustainability pioneer, announced  that
         it will convert 47 hectares  of Al Saja’a
         landfill area into a state-of-the-art solar
         energy facility in Sharjah once the landfill
         is  capped.  This  is the  first project of its
         kind  in  the region  and  the solar energy
         landfill project will generate more than 42
         megawatts of energy per year.

         Driving environmental  sustainability  and
         a circular economy, Bee’ah has taken an
         integrated approach to waste management
         through a zero-waste  strategy,  so after
         waste is collected and transferred to
         Bee’ah’s  Waste  Management Complex,
         advanced recycling facilities  recover
         valuable resources and recyclables.
