    NAPLES - A landfill in Sharjah will be converted into a solar power plant able to generate over 42 megawatts of energy per year. The project, reported by Gulf News, concerns a landfill of the United Arab Emirates managed by Bee'ah, a company that operates in the environmental sector.
    The first phase of the project provides for the conversion of the landfill area into 270,565 square meters of solar area with an initial projected output of 24 MW. The second phase will convert an additional 16 MW solar power. Before the creation of the solar plat, Bee'ah will recuperate materials that can be recycled. These include tire recycling, car and metal shredding.
    Facilities to recycle the materials will also be built.
    ''This investment to rejuvenate the Al Saja's landfill for long-term solar infrastructure will help Sharjah attain its renewable energy targets, and reduce out dependence of fossil fuels'', Khaled Al Huraimel, CEO of Bee'ah, told the newspaper.
