Tires as Alternative Fuel for Cement Production

be'’ah has taken proactive steps to collaborate with key stakeholders for off-taking the recycled material as raw material for their industrial processes. be’ah’s signing of a supply contract with Oman marks the beginning of an important and strategic partnership. Oman Cement requires a cost-effective solution that utilizes alternative fuels in conjunction with fossil fuels co-combustion plant to produce cement. This also serves be’'ah’'s goals in diverting 30,000 tonnes of tire waste annually from landfills and other relevant waste streams to the cement production process as fuel.

This also serves be’'ah’'s goals in diverting 30,000 tonnes of tire waste annually from landfills and other relevant waste streams to the cement production process as fuel. Based on a survey conducted, Oman generates around 45,000 tonnes of ELT per annum. The supply agreement with Oman Cement Co. will divert around 30,000 tonnes of ELT per annum structure. In this project, be’ah will sign a waste supply agreement with the project company and supply the feedstock. OPWP will sign a power purchase agreement with the project company. Another WTE initiative was studied with PDO to develop WTE at PDO’s concession area. PDO and be'’ah collaborated and finalized the feasibility study which outlines multiple scenarios for utilizing power and steam recovered from incinerating approximately 960,000 tonnes of waste per annum. This project will help PDO meet its requirement for high-pressure steam to be used for the Enhance Oil Recovery (EOR) activities. Upon final decision from PDO on the preferred scenario, be'’ah and PDO will enter into an agreement to commence RFQ and RFP processes for tendering out the project on BOT basis (66%). In addition, be'’ah also have a collection contract signed with United Rubber Industries (URI) in Nizwa who operate an ELT recycling facility that make rubber granulates from ELT and they have a capacity to treat 5,000 tonnes per annum. In total, be'’ah already have secured a commitment of 35,000 tonnes (77%). In addition, be’'ah conducts regular meeting with Steel smelters who have expressed their interest to secure the remaining feedstock from be’'ah as shredded ELT for use in their kiln to replace pet coke.
