Acid rain Factories and Ships Toxic Substances ( Waste) Seeping or Thrown into the Sea Affects Aquatic Life non-recyclable hazardous waste disposed of by burning or landfills change of ph of soil to acidic soils become not suitable for agriculture
soil erosion. The Impact of
Toxic Waste Waste Generation and Population in Oman landfills in Oman Waste Hierarchy Management old
standards New Standards Current Standards in Oman How We Can All Solve the Problem The Government Reduce, reuse and recycle waste, waste minimization programs
Public Awareness Programs to change mindset
involve private sector to solve the problem together Private Sector OESHCO COMPANY :
Institution framework.
 waste information system
waste management programs
waste management solution in DUQM Public Recycl at Home
Creat Web pages contribute to spreading awareness about the problem:
(instagram : @nice_idea @afkarksa1 )

 65 waste transfer station
4 waste treatment plants advantages of this method absorbs large quantities of waste
inexpensive disadvantages of this method Contaminate and toxic gases seep to air through a gaps in the landfill site (like; CH4&CO2)
pollutes water : when it rains, it carries with it organic and inorganic pollutants from landfills advantages of this method -Reduces the volume of waste to 90%
-produces thermal energy (that results from combustion) to generate electricity Incineration or Burning: disadvantages of this method - High financial cost for the establishment and maintenance
-Remains resulting from the combustion process should be discarded
- Can cause pollution of (air, water and soil) by acid rain advantages of this method Minimize environmental pollution
create new, good things with less cost disadvantages of this method None from : OESHC Waste Minimization our recommendation built factories for recycle domestic and medical waste
raise public awareness about the important of reusing and recycling waste spicily for school student
sort the waste from their sources to be easy for recycling later
ues the hazardous waste as a resource of energy by convert it gases such as methane gas
do some scientific research to find new solution from : waste management in the sultana of Oman landfills Sewage Treatment from wasted water and household sewage thank you for listening
