As part of its strategy to divert municipal solid waste away from landfills through the introduction of recycling and recovery activities, Oman Environmental Services Holding Company (Be’ah) is planning to develop biogas plants in Oman.

Be’ah concerns feasibility study tender to create biogas plant

As a very first step, the authority has issued a tender for conducting a feasibility study to create a biogas plant in Oman. The final date for submission of the tender application is October 28.

The implementation of biogas plants is element of Be’ah’s waste diversion method to divert 60 per cent of the municipal strong waste from all landfills across the sultanate by 2030 and 80 per cent by 2040 by means of the introduction of recovery activities. “In diverting organic waste from landfills to produce renewable energy, the biogas plant is considered the first step towards achieving this objective.”

According to Be’ah, the biogas project aims at generating biogas, a renewable power supply made from raw supplies such as agricultural waste, municipal waste, plant material, sewage, green waste or meals waste. The breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen produces a mixture of various gases referred to as biogas. It can be employed as a fuel for any heating objective and to create electrical energy.

Be’ah strives towards a vision to preserve the atmosphere of Oman for future generations. Be’ah’s primary objectives are to handle the environmental harm incurred in the course of standard waste dumping processes, structure the waste sector and its associated solutions in a sustainable manner, create the business and help the economy.
