Omani firm plans waste-to-energy project

MUSCAT, December 13, 2017

The Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP) is planning a first of its kind ambitious waste-to-energy project in the sultanate, and will commission a feasibility study for the project soon, said a report.

The venture is based on a proposal floated by Be’ah, the sultanate’s solid waste management flagship, which has long advocated for a number of waste-to-energy schemes as possible solutions to tackle the prodigious quantities of municipal waste ending up in landfills around Oman, added the Oman Daily Observer report.

Further details about this important initiative are expected to be presented at the Oman Waste and Environmental Services Conference & Exhibition (OWES), which opens later today.

The two-day event, organised by well-known events management firm Oman Expo in partnership with Be’ah, will be formally inaugurated by Mohammed bin Salim al Tobi, Minister of Environment and Climate Affairs.
