28 February 2023 – Mr. Ziyad Al-Shiha, CEO of the Saudi Investment Recycling Company (SIRC), and member of the Executive Committee of the Franco-Saudi Business Council (CAFS), was the guest of Bloomber Asharq to present the future of the recycling sector in Saudi Arabia.
He explained that until now, less than 5% of waste was recycled, and that this sector should be supported by everyone in the country. Indeed, the fact that 95% of waste goes to landfill constitutes a loss of potential income as well as a danger to the environment.
This is precisely why the SIRC was created, to realize the vision of His Highness Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, with the ambitious goal of diverting 100% of municipal solid waste from landfills in order to achieve 81% recycling. and 19% energy production from this waste.
