The Medical Waste Treatment Plant was inaugurated at Al Amerat on 29th January 2006 by His Excellency Mohammed Khamis Al-Arami, Under Secretary of the Ministry of Regional Municipalities, Environment and Water Resources in the presence of His Excellency  Dr Ahmed Abdulqadir Al Ghassani, the Under Secretary of the Ministry of Health and other senior government officials.

Technique LLC was selected by the Tender Board to design, build and operate an MWTP (Medical Waste Treatment Plant) for five years at a cost of RO 2 million. The site is located adjacent to the new Muscat Municipality Landfill Complex at Al–Multaqa in the Walliyat of Al Amerat. A nine month schedule was set for the construction of the Plant. The plant was built to treat medical waste as defined by WHO (World Health Organization). It is equipped with two identical lines of ‘high-tech’ incinerators using LPG gas. Each line has a capacity of 2 Tons per day. Provision has been made for the installation of a third line in the future.

The plant employs the latest technology from ATI France which has supplied the same proven process to other GCC countries and world-wide. The incinerators are very robust, compact and simple to operate. Each line is equipped with a special post combustion chamber and gas treatment system to fully comply with the latest European Emission Standards. Stringent gas Emission Monitoring and Testing is conducted by independent inspectors for the Ministry of Regional Municipalities, Environment and Water Resources and Ministry of Health every three months.

Apart from operating the Plant, Technique LLC has the responsibility for the collection and processing of all medical waste from Hospitals and Medical Centres within the Muscat Municipal area. These currently stand at 36 establishments. All Medical staff have been trained to dispose of medical waste in specially designed and identifiable bins supplied by Technique LLC. These are collected by purpose built vehicles along specific routings on a daily basis and delivered to the Plant being initially identified, weighed, screened and then processed on one of the two lines. Thereafter the bins are totally disinfected and returned to the Hospitals and Medical Centres. The total operation provides a significant employment opportunity for the local area to which Technique LLC is committed to reaching an Omanization level of 69% for its total work force.
