Haya Water plant produces 2m organic compost bags

MUSCAT, December 5, 2017

Oman’s  government-owned water reuse organisation Haya Water Company’s organic compost plant ‘Kala’ has announced production of 2 million organic compost bags since the plant was established in 2011.

During the period, the plant treated 270,000 tonnes of sludge and 16,500 tonnes of green waste and horse manure that would have contributed to environmental pollution and greenhouse gas emissions if these materials were disposed into solid waste dumps, said a report in the Oman Daily Observer.

This reflects Haya Water’s commitment to protect the environment and contribute in ‘making Oman greener and healthier’, it said.

The plant is equipped with the latest technologies and advanced equipment. Since its establishment, the plant adopted the highest international standards in the management and operation.

As a result, it has been awarded the ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OASAS 18001 certification and was accredited by UN Programme for clean development.

Kala plant is the first organic compost plant in the Middle East to obtain such certificates, added the report.
