AMSTERDAM, October 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
BEE'AH will reveal the world premier launch of ENVIPCO's newest Reverse Vending Machine technology at the Green Middle East exhibition, set to take place from October 17th to 19th, 2011 at the Expo Centre, in Sharjah of the United Arab Emirates.
Bee'ah, the Middle East's leading and award-winning environmental and waste management company, and Envipco Holding N.V., a public-listed company on the NYSE Euronext Brussels "ENVI" and a global provider of recycling systems and solutions to the beverage and retail industries, announce the launch of its latest, state of the art Reverse Vending Machine for small to medium size markets.
The initiative comes as part of Bee'ah's recycling drive to promote a better, cleaner and greener environment for Sharjah and the UAE at large. Bee'ah will be using Envipco's newest technology, the Flex, an interactive reverse vending machine for the recovery of aluminum and plastic (PET) beverage containers. Consumers redeeming their used containers will be motivated by means of several incentives and reward schemes. This automated machine will be able to track, account, and sort each type of eligible container programmed for acceptance. Once containers are accepted, the Flex machine will crush them, providing efficiency for collection, processing, and saving energy and carbon footprint.
"Increasing our community's participation in recycling is a key objective for us at Bee'ah. We are delighted to be the first to introduce this very new and innovative system, where people are encouraged and rewarded for their good actions which benefit both their environment and the city of Sharjah," commented Mr. Khaled Al Huraimel, Chief Executive Officer at Bee'ah.
After the exhibition, these reverse vending-machines will be placed in high-footfall locations across the city and are expected to take the incentive further with reward vouchers from participating venues and outlets.
Green Middle East, the leading regional exhibition for the environment industry in the Middle East, is set to be the launching pad for this new technology. With Sharjah at the forefront of leading positive environmental change in the UAE and the Middle East, Bee'ah is currently working with corporate-responsible brands and companies as partners to make reverse vending machines yet another success in raising public awareness and driving positive behavioral change amongst residents.
