IBC streamlines and automates its procurement processes through an embedded integration with Oracle E-business suite financial modules

IBC owns and operates the Municipal Solid Waste Treatment Plant in Saida that currently serves the 16 municipalities of the Saida - Zahrani area. Built on 40,000 square meters of reclaimed land, IBC’s plant has the capacity to daily treat 550 metric tons of mixed solid waste according to the latest environmental standards regarding emissions, including wastewater, noise, air, and residues. IBC formally started operations in November 2012. IBC uses first, mechanical biological treatment (MBT) to sort and separate wastes and recover recyclables. Organic fractions are then anaerobically treated to produce energy and soil amendment. Originally designed as per the latest European technologies by a joint Lebanese-German team of engineers; and equipped by various proven suppliers, this process was adapted to handle our “Lebanese” unsorted mixed waste, which is quite different in composition than the source separated waste of Europe.
