Lebanon has signed a contract with a German company to clean and dispose of 52 containers of hazardous materials from the Port of Beirut, the Lebanese Army has announced.

The materials in question include flammable chemicals, toxic gases, self-reactive substances and other volatile substances.

Combi Lift, a German heavy lifting and transport company, signed a $ 3.6 million deal on November 11 with port authority, the Lebanese Army and Lebanese Customs.

The company continued to remove the containers from the port after the contract was signed, the Lebanese prime minister’s office told AFP on Thursday.

The removal of these containers comes more than 3 months after the massive explosion of ammonium nitrate that exploded in Beirut, killing over 200 people and injuring and displacing thousands more.

It also constitutes a necessary “preliminary step,” said interim port chief Bassem Al-Kaissi, warning that if these chemicals catch fire, “Beirut will disappear.”

The Lebanese army previously split the chemicals from each other in preparation for the hired company to dispose of them safely.

The army would initially be tasked with clearing the containers and disposing of them.

However, because it does not have the technology or position required to take these measures, it ended up reducing the risk of materials by covering them with sand and transporting them to a safe place in the port, after separating them, according to Al -Akbar.
