Haya Water supports Waste Management Conference

The conference was organized by Muscat Municipality during the period from March 25 to 26.

Haya Water set up a canopy to showcase its initiatives towards water reuse project, practical waste management and the benefits that Haya Water brings to the environment through Kala Compost and treated effluents.

Haya Water’s stall provided a complete overview about the phases of treatment to produce treated effluent for irrigation and landscaping purposes.

Highlighting the importance of convening experts in the field of waste management, Eng. Hussain AbdulHussain, CEO of Haya Water noted, “This is a great opportunity for the waste management sector to come together and share ideas and new technologies that will benefit everyone in the Sultanate and the region in general.”

Eng. Hussain AbdulHussain also added, “Haya Water consistently supports forums such as these and will always promote the projects and progress on initiatives aimed at keeping with its vision of Making Muscat a Better City. The 2nd International Conference For Waste Management organized by Muscat Municipality is one of the major events in this area.”

The event saw sessions on waste management strategies, sustainability, technologies and hazardous waste. Waste management is a sector that has seen a vast increase in the recent times and Oman has made significant progress towards waste management solutions.

Delegates attending the 2 day forum discussed issues including techniques of solid waste management, hazardous waste – its impact and solution, waste to energy or energy from waste, clean development mechanism and effectively managing construction and demolition waste among others concerns specific to the Sultanate.

One of Haya Water’s significant projects towards managing waste is the Kala Composting plant, that is located at Al Multaqa in Amerat, to enable the efficient reuse of sewage biosolids, and green waste to enable their conversion to compost that can be used for agriculture, landscaping and for individual gardens.

Haya Water has often been lauded on the positive environmental impact of their projects. Towards this, the company was awarded the prestigious OER ‘Green Footprint’ award for its Kala Composting Plant. As a result, today 100% of all sewage biosolids generated by the company’s water reuse treatment plants is now treated and converted to compost – instead of being dumped into a landfill site as hand been the practice in the past.

The capacity of the plant to deal with a wide range of other waste also means that other companies are now sending their waste to the Kala Composting Plant instead of dumping it into landfill sites – something that can contribute to creating greenhouse gases – especially methane.

Haya Water’s vision is to enable Muscat to become one of the top cities in the world by building and operating a world class Water Reuse system that connects at least 80% of the residential properties by the year 2018 and brings enormous environmental benefits to the Muscat Governorate area.
