Arabian Gases, a subsidiary of Gulf Cryo, has signed a long term supply agreement with Bee’ah, providing the latter with liquid nitrogen used for cold grinding of used tyres in preparation for recycling.

As the Sharjah waste management and environmental company, Bee’ah helps to minimise the pollution caused by disposal of used tyres – by recycling them in the first state-of-the art recycling facility of its kind in the Middle East.

Naji Skaf, COO of Gulf Cryo, explained, “We are thrilled to be part of the environmental efforts of the government of Sharjah. Disposed tyres constitute a significant environmental hazard and the process implemented through Be’ah will help minimise that pollution source.”

Khaled Al Huraimel, General Manager of Bee’ah, confidently added, “Bee’ah’s state-of-the-art tyre recycling facility will be the first of its kind in the Middle East.”

“This agreement with Arabian Gases brings us closer to our goal of processing over two million tyres a year that will be re-used in rubber blended materials for construction our new roads and parks.”

Bee’ah is an environmental company operating in the Emirate of Sharjah, founded in 2007, with a primary mission to transform Sharjah through the implementation of sustainable environmental best practices and policies.

The announcement of the deal comes just days after the Gulf Cryo group revealed it would be expanding and enhancing its tanker fleet, following the signing of a purchase agreement with Linde’s Cryo AB in Sweden for 14 semi trailers.
