be’ah signs key pacts to support sustainable agro-waste products

As part of the events of the International Solid Waste Congress, Oman Environmental Services Holding Company (be’ah) signed two sustainable agricultural waste agreements in Muscat.


The first is an agreement with NTZ Solutions for the “recycling of green and bulky waste materials into biochar” – a type of charcoal produced from organic materials that can be used as a fertiliser.


NTZ Solutions is anticipated to establish the first biochar production facility in Oman.


Chairman and Founder of NTZ Solutions, Sharifa Tahir Aidid, shared the following in a statement, “This agreement with be’ah reflects our shared dedication to sustainable waste management practices, resource optimization, and environmental responsibility. As the inaugural biochar production facility in Oman, this project aims to set an example for other entities and countries in the region, in both sustainable waste management and the commercialization potential of green projects.”


The second agreement was signed with Turbah for the recycling of shredded green and bulky waste materials into compost.


Founder and Managing Partner of “Turbah”, Darren Olejnik, shared the following remarks: “This partnership aligns with our mission to produce sustainable, non-hazardous value-added products that cater to the growing demand for healthy soil and a diverse ecosystem. The ongoing support from be’ah stands as a testament to the holistic vision encapsulated in the 2040 Vision, and the signing of this contract solidifies a lasting connection between our two organisations.”


The agreements are anticipated to minimise emissions, enhance the concept of circular economy, and contribute to environmental conservation, according to a be’ah statement.


Chief Operating Officer of Municipal Solid Waste at be’ah, Hilal al Noumani, shared the following, “These agreements are tangible steps in be’ah’s journey to deliver its strategy and help realise Oman Vision 2040 and the national goal of Net Zero by 2050. Our partnerships with Turbah and NTZ Solutions are essential levers that we will fully utilize to uphold our commitment to sustainable waste management and environmental stewardship.”
