SRTIP, BEEAH Group and Peec Mobility Partner to Drive Green Mobility in Sharjah

The partners plan to electrify cars, buses and waste collection trucks as their traditional engines reach end-of-life

BEEAH Group, Peec Mobility and the Sharjah Research, Technology and Innovation Park (SRTIP) have launched a ground-breaking partnership to advance the electrification of major vehicle fleets in Sharjah, supporting national and global goals for zero-waste, circularity, sustainable transport, and decarbonisation.

In the presence of H.E Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi, President of American University of Sharjah and Chairperson of SRTIP, the partnership agreement was signed by Khaled Al Huraimel, Group CEO of BEEAH; Zach Faizal, Founder of Peec Mobility; and HE Hussain Al Mahmoudi, CEO of SRTIP, at the BEEAH Headquarters in Sharjah.

As part of the venture, vehicles will be repurposed using ReMethod, Peec’s customised engineering process, supporting the transition to electric vehicles while minimising the environmental impact of the vehicle manufacturing process.

BEEAH's collaboration with Peec closely aligns with its mandate to champion smart and sustainable solutions to increase quality of life and build future-ready cities. Meanwhile, SRTIP bridges academic institutions, businesses, and government agencies to play a pivotal role in promoting innovation and entrepreneurship.

Supported by the Sharjah Roads & Transport Authority (SRTA), the University of Sharjah (UOS) and American University of Sharjah (AUS), the strategic endeavour is a significant step towards localised production of repurposed vehicles.

It will also engage academia in Sharjah to drive skill development, knowledge-sharing and employment opportunities.

The 'ReTruck' pilot project marks the first stage of the collaboration, where a BEEAH waste collection truck will undergo repurposing using the Peec method.

All waste generated during this pilot will be recycled at BEEAH's integrated waste management complex that houses a range of state-of-the-art recycling facilities and the UAE’s first waste-to-energy plant, which have collectively helped Sharjah achieve 90% landfill waste diversion, the highest in the Middle East.

Peec Mobility and BEEAH will also collaborate to recycle and repurpose materials and spare parts, with a focus on end-of-life batteries from electric vehicles. This joint effort aims to contribute to the creation of a circular economy, supporting net zero emissions goals in the UAE and beyond.

Peec will provide specific volumes of scrap components, including vehicle engines, gearboxes, exhaust pipes, cooling systems and tires, for responsible disposal and recycling at BEEAH Recycling’s facilities.
