BEEAH signs MoU to convert wood, plastic into hydrogen

BEEAH has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Japanese gas conglomerate Air Water and the British waste-to-fuel technology firm Chinook Sciences. They will work together to develop a facility in Sharjah that will convert waste wood and plastic into hydrogen that can be used for fuel. The facility will also include a fueling station for vehicles.

Chinook and BEEAH first announced their intentions to work together on hydrogen energy in 2021.

Waste-to-energy is starting to take off in the United Arab Emirates. BEEAH and Masdar, another Emirati renewable energy firm, unveiled a waste-to-energy plant in Sharjah in May.
The following July, the Emirates Water, and Electricity Company and Abu Dhabi Waste Management Center asked for bids to build a waste-to-energy plant in Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafra landfill.

These moves are part of a wider move in the UAE toward green technology and away from oil and gas, though oil and gas remain integral to the UAE’s strategic objectives.
