UAE plans to build its first electric vehicle battery recycling facility

Beeah Group
Pact signed to explore a collaboration to set up the UAE's first recycling plant for end-of-life batteries from EVs

Beeah Recycling has signed an agreement with the UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure and the American University of Sharjah with a view to setting up the country’s first recycling plant for end-of-life batteries from electric vehicles (EVs).

The facility will be added to Beeah Recycling’s integrated waste management complex, which currently has 10 specialised waste processing and material recovery facilities that have contributed to a 76 percent waste diversion rate in Sharjah, the highest in the Middle East, the company said in a statement.

The UAE has witnessed a rising number of people making the change from traditional vehicles to EVs. 

According to the Global Electric Mobility Readiness Index – Gemrix 2022, over 30 percent of people in the UAE were considering switching to EVs. Projections show the EV market will grow at a CAGR of 30 percent between 2022 and 2028.
