Qatar’s Modern Recycling Factory (MRF), based in Mesaieed Industrial City, is now operational. The $41.3m (QAR150.06m) facility was financed and endorsed more than two years ago by Al Khalij Commercial Bank in support of Qatar’s green-technology business sector.
Qatar’s MRF is one of the largest recycling projects in the country. The plant supplied by Danish equipment manufacturer Eldan Recycling will be used to recycle used tires and rubber materials to make new products.
Members of Al Khalij Commercial Bank were given a tour of the facility following the commencement of operations. Speaking during the event, Fahad Al Khalifa, the bank’s chief executive officer, said: “As part of our ‘Generation Green’ program the MRF project contributes to the production of environmentally friendly, value-added products for commercial and industrial use, while creating economic opportunities that contribute to diversifying state revenues.”
MRF stakeholders are confident that the facility will serve to conserve energy, preserve natural resources, and reduce Qatar’s need for raw materials.
