Waste Management Oman - Muscat 11 - 12 march 2014 Discover Veolia’s waste management services

Waste Management is one of the most serious challenges faced by all countries across Middle East. The high rate of population growth, urbanization, migration, industrial growth and economic expansion has led to tremendous increase in solid waste generation in the region.

Interestingly, per capita solid waste generation in Gulf countries is one of the highest worldwide. The gross urban waste generation from Middle East countries has risen to more than 150 million tons per annum which is posing serious environmental and public health hazards.

Oman now has one of the highest rates of waste generation per capita in the world, around 1.6kg/day. Currently all forms of waste, be it bio degradable or plastic and other hazardous material is being buried into landfills and even the engineered ones in the long run will result in seepage of toxins into the soil, while resources continue depleting. Hence the Government has planned investments of about RO2.5bn over the next ten years.
