Committed to sustainability: Eco-Efforts at Al Shirawi

Sustainability means meeting our own needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In addition to natural resources, we also need social and economic resources.

Sustainability is important for many reasons including: Environmental Quality – In order to have healthy communities, we need clean air, natural resources, and a nontoxic environment.

Sustainability aims to use our resources efficiently to benefit our campus and community.

If something is sustainable we could keep using or doing it for a long time.

The impact of climate change is moving at breakneck speed. We are addressing this by working towards more sustainable operations with clean energy, water and waste management.

With a long term vision to provide solutions for sustainability to our customers, we have redefined our core business and vision. The key to our continued growth will be innovation in these fields with an eye to a future with a cleaner environment. We aim to become a carbon neutral manufacturer of reliable solutions.

Water sustainability efforts at Al Shirawi

At Al Shirawi Equipment, we understand the importance of conserving water, whether it is through individual good practices or through sustainable use of water resources.

Clear Water Solutions LLC, a subsidiary of Al Shirawi Equipment, provides turnkey solutions for water and wastewater, specializing in wastewater treatment for reuse. A pioneer in the field, Clear Water Solutions team has served a growing list of satisfied customers since 2008.

With the help of Clear Water Solutions, our group has installed a Grey Water Treatment Plant at the labor camp in Jebel Ali. This biological treatment plant is integrated with the drainage system and recovers 100% of the water required for flushing toilets. This plant minimizes the disposal of wastewater and its associated pollution, reduces the amount of freshwater the camp consumes, and requires very little energy or chemicals, reducing their carbon footprint further.


Our group has recently commissioned Clear Water Solutions to install three more such plants at labor camps within the group, for reuse in toilet flushing. Once these plants are operational, we will be collectively recovering around 200 m3, or nearly 45,000 Imperial Gallons of wastewater daily, with additional projects in the pipeline.

With Clear Water Solutions, we aim to become one of the leading solutions providers to water and wastewater industry, helping lead the efforts towards water sustainability.

Solar Energy Implementation

The share of renewables in global electricity generation jumped to nearly 28% in Q1 2020 from 26% in Q1 2019. The increase in renewables came mainly at the cost of coal and gas, though those two sources still represent close to 60% of global electricity supply.

Renewable energy, often referred to as clean energy, comes from natural sources or processes that are constantly replenished. Solar energy is a renewable source of energy, in the form of light, produced by the Sun. Solar energy is a clean source of energy and does not damage our planet.

With the aim to commit towards a more sustainable future, Al Shirawi provides sustainable energy solutions to bring clean energy to the world.

Set to achieve their first ever milestone, Al Shirawi Equipment has installed a solar plant of the size 1828KWp in the Dubai Industrial City. This is directed towards their vision to become a carbon-neutral manufacturer of reliable solutions.

This magnificent plant runs on 99% solar energy and allows 2300 metric tons of carbon saving yearly which is equal to 218000 Trees or equal to 259000 gallons of gasoline.

Keeping key design and production goals in mind, Al Shirawi Equipment pledges to become a reliable and sustainably forward solutions provider

Waste Management

Waste management solution involves collection, transportation, processing and disposal or recycling of waste materials.

Al Shirawi Equipment Co has for 44 years been supplying the GCC with quality truck mounted and stationery Garbage Compactors and has now progressed to offer processing of Waste in order to generate Solid Recovered Fuels partnering with Lindner Austria to offer world class products and solutions locally!

Solid Recovered Fuels (SRF) for Main Burners 

Shredding of municipal, commercial and industrial waste for incineration with energy recovery in the main burner.


In Great Demand in Cement Works

Quality is king. Solid recovered fuels produced by Lindner machines are in great demand because they meet the high requirements for incineration in the main burner. The cement industry is ablaze with interest, the sheer quantity produced proves that.

Over the last 10 years, 1.2 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) have been saved in a cement facility, which would otherwise have been generated by using hard coal or lignite.

High in Calorific Value and Precise – Premium Solid Recovered Fuels for Main Burners

Premium solid recovered fuels (SRF) are mainly used for co-incineration in the main burners of rotary kilns. As a substitute for primary fuels such as oil, coal or gas, the solid recovered fuel must be composed of precisely defined particles. This is the only way to achieve the high temperatures required to form the desired clinker minerals (approx. 1,450 °C) in the kiln‘s sintering zone.
