Etihad Rail is partnering with BEEAH Tandeef to manage waste at Etihad Rail’s sites safely and in an environmentally responsible manner

The sites include Al Mirfa Depot, Muzaira’a, Al Mirfa Viewpoint, Riviera Mirfa Residence, the main operation and maintenance center in Al Faya, and freight stations in Ruwais, Al Ghuwaifat, Industrial City in Abu Dhabi (ICAD), and Dubai Industrial City.

Under the terms of the agreement, BEEAH Tandeef will provide waste management services for the entire Etihad Rail network, including regular waste collection, transportation, disposal, and recycling.

Etihad Rail routinely conducts environmental impact assessments, applying them at all stages, from planning to construction and operations. As a result, this contributes to reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the UAE’s road transport sector by 21% annually by 2050.

The agreement aims to prioritise material recovery and recycling, including metals, paper, plastic, and other organic materials.

BEEAH Tandeef will also apply circularity principles when recycling certain waste, converting it into fertiliser for local agricultural use.

Ahmed Al Yafei, CEO of Etihad Rail Infrastructure, said, “Waste management services represent an essential pillar in our commitment to preserving the environment, protecting public health, and conserving resources. We have chosen to work with BEEAH Tandeef due to its successful track record with national entities and companies in the UAE, and we are confident in its capabilities to provide specialised solutions that align with our operational and corporate objectives.

“Moreover, this agreement supports our goal of transitioning towards a low-carbon future, helping us support local waste management strategies and related global efforts, and contributing to the protection of the local environment for current and future generations.”

Khaled Al Huraimel, CEO of BEEAH Group, said, "As we embark on this significant partnership with Etihad Rail, we are not only reaffirming our commitment to the highest international standards in waste management but also taking bold steps toward the realisation of the UAE's sustainability vision.

“This agreement aligns seamlessly with BEEAH Group's mission to provide ground-breaking environmental solutions for future-ready cities. By professionally managing waste and harnessing the latest technologies, BEEAH Tandeef, our subsidiary, is proud to support Etihad Rail in its pursuit of preserving the environment, protecting public health, and promoting sustainable practices. Together, we are creating a better tomorrow for all, in harmony with the vision of the nation’s wise leadership."
