The center will also contribute to achieving be’ah’s goals by promoting circular economy initiatives and green sustainability practices throughout Oman.

The second agreement aims to develop a project to produce biogas from organic waste diverted from engineered landfills through cost-effective and efficient biological techniques. This project targets reducing greenhouse gas emissions and producing biogas which can be utilized to produce electricity, in addition to an output of organic fertilizers. -ONA
