Oman firm to set up waste management projects in India
28 February 2017
Oman-based Muscat Project and Environmental Service Company is in discussions with the South Indian state of Kerala to set up its state-of-the-art waste management projects in that state, said a report.
The eco-friendly project which has been successfully implemented in Oman is the ideal one for Kerala which is grappling with issues like pollution, usage of an overdose of pesticides in agricultural farms and water pollution, reported Times of Oman, citing a top-level Kerala official.
The prevailing waste disposal method in the sultanate is really impressive and can easily be replicated in Kerala, remarked Niyas Pulikkalakath, the chairman of Kerala’s State Industrial Development Corporation (Sidco) after a meeting with EM Badruddeen, the managing director of the Muscat Project and Environmental Service Company.
Pulikkalakathu will submit a report to the Kerala government for replicating similar projects aimed at protecting the environment, which is a major concern in Kerala, the report added.
