Royal Decree 46/2009 Quote

Royal Decree No. 46/2009 in connection with management and operation of Waste Sector by Oman Holding Company for Environment Services SAOC.

Article one: Oman Holding Company for Environment Services SAOC an (Omani Closed Stock Company fully owned by the government) undertakes implementation of the government policy with regard to the waste sector, management and operation of the sector activities in accordance with the sector strategy being planned by the National Economy Ministry.”



At be’ah, we invest in leading change to put waste management on its strongest possible foot for the future. We believe that by maximizing the effective utilization of our resources and minimizing the destructive environmental impacts, we build a solid foundation for both economic and environmental sustainability for our nation and future generations.
In an effort to cope with waste problems that have evolved over the years, the Omani government enacted in 2006 and put in place a National Strategy Report to promote proper waste management, effective use of resources, development of adequate infrastructure and implementation of sustainable goals to make a lasting impact on the country'’’s future.

The introduction of the National Strategy Report initiative brought with it the Royal Decree No. (2009/46) which mandated the establishment of Oman Environmental Services Holding Company (be’ah), with the aim of undertaking solid waste management and framing sustainability goals in terms of resource preservation in the Sultanate of Oman. Subsequently, be’ah took over the Healthcare Waste Treatment Facility and a budget was approved by the Ministry of Finance in 2012 to bring this goal to fruition.

Strategic Goals

Our strategic goals are fundamental to everything we do. As a society, our local practices have been affected to greater or lesser degree by the global fundamental transformations causing our waste stream to change. As a result, traditional waste management practices are no longer perfectly suited to process what is today a very different waste stream.
It is our goal to steer our effort towards reducing the amount of waste going to traditional landfills and increasing the recovery and recycling of valuable resources. We have undertaken several actions in recent years regarding the improvement of waste management services by closing some landfill sites that do not meet environmental standards and operating new transfer stations while engaging contractors for most of our waste management services across the Sultanate.
We continue to endeavor to lead the change to a more sustainable system across the Sultanate, supported by four main objectives:

  • Deliver affordable, efficient, and sustainable waste management and resource reuse systems.
  • Involve the community in reducing waste and increasing reuse and recovery.
  • Contribute to the viability of our economy by improving resource productivity and reducing environmental impact.
  • Protect our environment for current and future generations.
