ALJESR Scrap Metal Trading LLC has been operating a plant in Sharjah, UAE and the main activities involve mainly trading of metal scrap..The main items included as part of trade are various grades of Aluminium, Iron alloys and occasional used up/waste dry automobile batteries. These materials are bought and sold in UAE and International markets.ALJESR plant occupies an area of about 1,800 m*m and is located in Sajaa area of Sharjah Industrial area, UAE.
With the growing demand, ALJESR plans to increase its sale on used batteries and intends to include batteries received from suppliers with acids. These used batteries will be dried by draining out acid prior to its sale. The acid will be collected in underground holding Reinforced Cement Concrete(RCC) tank and then sent for disposal to authorized facility in Sharjah.
As a pre-requirement from Sharjah Municipality for obtaining the Environmental Permit, ALJESR has contracted Envirozone Consultants FZE (Envirozone) to conduct Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) study for identifying any risks for handling, storing and trading of used batteries, separating the acid from these batteries and storing the acid in an underground RCC storage tank. Envirozone concluded that the risks involved range between low and medium and that no high level risk was observed.
While most of the risks identified are mainly ‘Low’ levels, appropriate mitigation measures and monitoring plan is recommended to further reduce these risks to acceptable levels,the mitigation measures and monitoring plan has been presented in the current ERA study as part of the Environmental Management plan (EMP) that need to be implemented for smooth operations at ALJESR Facility.
