The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and the Belgian infrastructure firm Besix have signed a joint venture agreement to operate an existing wastewater treatment plant at Al Saja’a in the UAE called Qatra. This newly established firm will continue developing wastewater infrastructure as per the city’s masterplan. Besix played a fundamental role in constructing the Burj Khalifa and the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi. As per the expansion plans, the plant will be able to maximise the amount of reused water produced, which will in turn double the daily recycling capacity from 30 million litres of water to 60 million litres. This water will be primarily channelized for industrial use.



Ilham Kadri becomes Chairman of the Executive Committee, member of the Board of Directors and CEO of the Belgian Group Solvay (chemical). Ilham Kadri is CEO and President of U.S. hygiene technology and services company Diversey. She worked for multinationals like Shell-Basell, UCB-Cytec, Huntsman and Dow Chemical across the United States, Europe, the Middle East and in Asia. A holder of Moroccan and French nationalities, Ilham Kadri has an engineering degree from the European School of Chemistry, Polymers and Materials Science in Strasbourg, France, and a PhD in macromolecular physico-chemistry from Louis Pasteur University in Strasbourg.
