    The Bee'ah recycling plant started in the kitchen of Samer Kamal's mother. The Canadian-Palestinian businessman was disgusted by the amount of cans and bottles and paper going into the waste when he knew it could all be recycled.

    So Kamal partnered with Sultan bin Mohamed al-Qasimi, the ruler of the emirate of Sharjah, to split the cost of the $40 million plant, which is said to be the largest in the Middle East.

    Bee'ah, which began operating in April, handles a million tonnes of waste every year, as Al Jazeera's Dan Nolan reports.
