UAE to open facility that converts waste to green hydrogen

The Gulf state already has one waste-to-energy plant and is looking to build more.

The Sharjah-based sustainability company BEEAH Group signed an agreement Tuesday to build the first waste-to-hydrogen power plant in the United Arab Emirates. 

BEEAH 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, the official Emirates News Agency reported.
