JUBAIL, Saudi Arabia, December 12, 2019 – Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara) held a ceremony honoring the winners of the 2019 Innovative Environmental Solutions Competition.

The winners were recognized at a ceremony held recently at Sadara’s headquarters in Jubail Industrial City. Presiding at the event on behalf of Sadara’s Chief Executive Officer was the Vice President of Business and Services, Dr. Abdullah A. Alahmari.

Seventy-one contestants participated this year, compared with 52 competitors the previous year.

First place this year went to Shurouq Fallatah for her invention, “The Laboratory Capsule,” which demonstrates how to generate electric energy from chemical reactions, thereby reducing emissions of burning fossil fuels.

Muhammad Al-Sharif’s “Carbon Ash Project” won second place with an invention that recycles carbon ash resulting from burning industrial fuels.

“The Floating Belt Project” of Salah Al-Mutawa took third place, proposing a floating plastic belt on the surface of the ocean with lines extending down into the water to collect floating plastic waste before it reaches beaches and waterfront areas.

Dr. Alahmari congratulated this year’s winners and wished all participants the best of luck in the years to come.

During the ceremony, attendees also viewed a presentation on Sadara’s week-long Waste Free Environment Campaign, which recently concluded.

During that campaign, involving participation of more than 600 employees, volunteers and students from Jubail schools, some five tons of waste and plastic materials for recycling were removed from three main sites in Jubail: the Dammam-Jubail highway, the former beach camp areas and the industrial area outside Sadara’s chemical complex.

Al Quryan Group, Al Murjan Primary School, Al Hiraa Primary School, and the Professional Team for Volunteer Search and Rescue were recognized for their part in making the campaign a success.Jubail industrial City, the world’s largest industrial complex, implements strict regulations to control emissions and contaminants of all kinds. As a densely populated city, Jubail employs advanced technological systems to assure a high level of environmental balance in its residential and industrial zones.
