Qatar Opened Tire Recycling Plant

Qatar’s Modern Recycling Factory (MRF), based in Mesaieed Industrial City, came on stream in February.

The development is part of Qatar’s aim to develop sustainability and support green technology under its National Vision 2030 campaign. At 20,000 square meters, MRF is one of the largest Greenfield recycling projects in the country. The plant, supplied by Danish equipment manufacturer Eldan Recycling, will process used tires and rubber products. The 41.3 million Dollar facility was financed and endorsed more than two years ago by Al Khalij Commercial Bank in support of Qatar’s green-technology business sector. According to media reports, Qatar imports some 900,000 tires annually. Due to the growing market, around 500,000 scrap tires pile up every year.
