-- 2nd March, 2014 - Oman
The Sultanate of Oman has shown significance progress over the last few years to ensure it is tackling the issue of waste management head on. At the International Conference for Waste Management in Muscat in 2013, the conference concluded with recommendations that should be looked into and implemented to help achieve the aim of a waste free culture. The recommendations included regulating waste with the task of legislating, regulating, supervising and accountability. Another recommendation made was to involve the Omani community to carry out social studies for environmental awareness.
We have in the last couple months seen that the nation is doing its due diligence in this regards. In a report by Muscat Daily in December, the Ministry of Environment and Climate Affairs had issued orders suspending operations of companies who had not complied with environmental guidelines laid by the ministry. Last month also saw a recycled art symposium organised by the Oman Environmental Services Holding Company (OESHCO) to showcase the development in the waste management sector. Organized by Fleming Gulf, the 3rd International Conference for Waste Management Oman will reset the platform for industry and government institutions to discuss the next phase to managing waste.
Scheduled for the 7 to 8 April at the Al Bustan Palace in Muscat Oman, the conference is supported by key solution leaders in the field of waste management. Featuring a case-study from Finland, Martti Malmivirta will present on integrating technologies and services of different waste streams to maximize materials and energy yields. Malmivirta is the Co-Founder of the Finnish Material Efficiency Alliance (FMEA) and a Gold Sponsor at the event. FMEA solutions integrates the technologies and services related with different hazardous and non-hazardous waste streams into a comprehensive solution that extracts the maximum practical benefits from products and generates the minimum amount of waste.
Giving a local perspective of reducing and reusing in hazardous waste management will be a representative of Al Ahlia Environmental Services Co, Oman and Silver Sponsor at the conference. The session will see what is lacking in terms of dealing with hazardous waste and look into the aspects of identifying, transport, treatment, storage facilities and the legislation on trans-boundary movement of hazardous waste. It is the first hazardous waste facility in Oman under Public-Private Partnership with facilities in Sohar and Duqm. Exhibiting as a Bronze Sponsor will be Greece company POLYECO. The company provides rehabilitation and decontamination services, integrated waste management services and tank cleaning and sludge treatment services to the oil & gas, marine, power production and refining industries around the world.
