“Marine ecosystems are crucial to the stability of our planet and protecting our oceans from waste and pollution is a great responsibility. Bee’ah, renowned for its integrated waste management and circular economy solutions, is delighted to partner with Polygreen, a company that shares our values and vision for sustainability.”

Athanasios Polychronopoulos, Founder and CEO of Polygreen, said, “The launch of Evogreen is a milestone regarding the global effort to protect the environment and address the challenge of climate change. Polygreen is proud to join forces with Bee’ah and provide its expertise and infrastructure to further develop networks in the wider Middle East region. Through this joint venture, a fruitful bond is being established between Greece and the UAE, fostering the bilateral relations and paving a promising path.”

Evogreen has already established an Alternative Raw Material facility located in Bee’ah’s Waste Management Complex and is building an Alternative Solid Fuel facility, to process waste streams and convert them into alternative fuel that can be used in cement manufacturing. 

The Alternative Raw Material facility treats and processes maritime waste and marine-related hazardous waste, to produce alternative materials for industrial use. Both facilities will collect, recycle and recover hazardous and non-hazardous waste from ships visiting ports in the UAE, which is an international maritime hub.

Evogreen will also provide oil spill response services, management of distressed vessels, cargo and abandoned containers including recycling or recovery solutions, repair or refurbishment works, green ship recycling and establishing an environmental laboratory.
